‘I want you to remember something… You do what you want with your life. Alright? Break heads if you need to and hearts if you have to, but whatever you do don’t do what I did. Don’t waste yourself.’

Frank has been married for forty five years. Three years ago he fell in love.

Luke Norris’s taut and tender debut play, Goodbye to All That, asks if it’s ever too late to start again. It was first staged at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in 2012.


‘Fiercely funny and astutely upsetting… A terrific debut’

‘We’re in the presence, unquestionably, of a playwright of major promise’

‘Norris has come up with a fascinating 75-minute play about the differing possibilities of love’

‘Norris examines with rueful affection and clear-eyed pathos’
International Herald Tribune
