Quest to recapture happiness
This article is from 2007.
This stylish piece depicts the abject loneliness of two peoples’ lives as they try to recapture former happiness in their own unique ways. Alfred recounts memories of his honeymoon in Paris while Vivien dreams of a garden of her own. The couple draws you into their touching tales with a hint of melancholy, romance and humour. It’s an unobtrusive play that creeps up on you until you’re hooked on the simple pleasures and inevitable disappointments of life.
