"In Tom McGrath's 'My Old Man', human connections flicker and sputter between life and death. A woman tries finally to connect with her long lost and now dying father and with someone else who may be a lover, saviour or nemesis. Her son's equally desperate efforts to spark a relationship with his grandfather, and at the same time revive him, terminate in a kind of snuff video phone clip. People appear and disappear: at least as much apparitions, ghosts and fragmented memories as they are flesh and blood. With his gift for focusing on elemental features of life and theatre, Tom McGrath exposes the fragile bones and nerves of human relationships and drama alike in this extraordinary, searing piece..." -- Bob Tait, theatre reviewer.
