29 July - 3 September 2011
And No More Shall We Part follows Pam and Don’s halting, humorous and devastating attempt at the impossible – to say goodbye after a lifetime together.

Two of the country’s most exciting theatre makers combine to bring you a painfully intimate and profoundly moving glimpse into a lifelong love, and its poignant conclusion
