The performance review of Jack Thorne's The Solid Life of Sugar Water (Temporary Space, National Theatre production) argues that Thorne's play and Graeae Theatre Company succeeds admirably in producing a work that details the story of a disabled couple's failed pregnancy. The play is not about a married disabled couple suffering a loss. The play is instead about a married couple suffering a loss. In short, disability is not the focus of the play, but instead the inevitable pain and reaffirming love we all experience in our lives.
