“Steeped in Elyot's signature qualities – the knowing, slightly catty humour; the ardent wounded lyricism; and the sense of injuries echoing down the years in the highly-patterned temporal-hop plotting.” —Independent
“A masterclass in understated drama… fans of Elyot should be pleased he left this one last gift to them.” —WhatsOnStage
A moving, bittersweet play from the writer of the classic comedy My Night with Reg.
Set over a series of summer evenings in the 1960s and the present day, Twilight Song traces one family’s hidden liaisons over half a century.
A mysterious stranger turns up in their past and present – could he be the missing piece of the jigsaw they’ve been yearning for? Hilarious and heartbreaking, Kevin Elyot’s evocative final play proves how powerful our past can be in the present.
Twilight Song premiered at Park Theatre, London, in 2017.
