"I'm going to miss you like a cat with no neck misses licking its arse"

This and other gems got us laughing early. This feel-good playlet has many fine laughs, and lots of digs at the ignorance of youth, from "everyone's on Grindr" to "what do you mean  tomayto, tomahto," mixed in with council estate single mum chic and actually a quite thoughtful message - nothing too heavy though!

Playing to a packed house of 60 with a minimalist set, the three actors performed well, particularly Leni Murphy with huge Bette Lynch earrings playing a tough Northern single mum whose life revolves around her only son - but also has a secret of her own. 

A pleasant hour with humour that plays across the ages was well received by a largely 20-something audience, this one act playlet is recommended for an hours amusing and uplifting entertainment.

53 Two is always a pleasant venue to see any production and look forward to my next visit for the Fringe very soon.
