The Play:

From the next table, you overhear Lee and Jane as they reveal the tumultuous story of their lives by the shores of Loch Lomond through a combination of funny, angry, quirky and poignant conversations at their ‘swan song’ meeting. From that first unique encounter, scribbling notes in the sand, personal letters they have shared, through the highs and lows of their exciting and passionate, if frustrating affair, Jane and Lee reveal the intricacies of their relationship.

We reach a heart wrenching conclusion that leaves you replaying the conversations and events in your mind, unsure whether to laugh or cry and wondering...

...  ‘Should I be listening?’

The review (Edinburgh Fringe 2012)

“Say you love me, say it! Say you love me!” It’s not always easy to get those 3 little words out. Especially so in Jane’s case.  Punch Productions invite you to sit down, relax and enjoy the pleasant ambience of Café Camino. At the next table however Jane and Lee are having an animated conversation that has a tendency to flare up. We join them at their “swan song” meeting where they discuss their tumultuous relationship which includes a dying wife, a Spanish lover and love notes in the sand. We see and hear them reading out letters written to each other as they dwell on their battle to sustain their love affair.

A roller-coaster ride of emotions enable this heart-warming little play to build to its devastating climax. Karen Herbison’s beautifully written script serves as a perfect platform for the three talented performers to showcase their talents. With high humour versus high drama, the cast really have their work cut out. Truth is they are well up to the task and deliver with aplomb.

With many laughs along the way, suitably interrupted with ‘lump in your throat’ moments, this is an afternoon well spent.
