Julie McGregor as Maggie and Christopher Truswell as Arthur

The plot of the show addresses the problems of ageing and caring for somebody with increasing memory loss, with an often sharp-edged humour which carried with it a tinge of sadness. Despite its unlikely subject matter for a comedy, the show is a favourite with audiences. Maggie’s and Arthur’s relationship was presented with a fascinating complexity—Maggie’s cruel attacks on and emotional manipulation of Arthur disguised her deep dependence on and need of him, and Arthur’s dutiful love of Maggie was constantly in conflict with his guilty frustration at the huge limitations for his own life which looking after his mother entailed.
