"Diana Atkins and Hayley Thompson are excellent as sisters reacting in markedly different ways to their mother's recent death and realising that a particular enduring family ritual has been pointless all along. The play sends the sisters on quite a journey considering its short running time and the actors invest this with great subtlety and truth. Atkins is particularly memorable as the testy Chloe, whose grief has left her trapped in obsessive compulsive behaviour and a monstrous dressing gown."
