for a previous production “J.B. Priestley's ‘The Roundabout’ is an earlier, slighter work than those that established his reputation…The plot isn't quite sufficient to support over two hours' action…On the upside, Bessie Carter is splendid…Hugh Sachs has a lot of fun as Chuffy…As for the other characters - well, caricatures - I found them too broad to believe in really…Perhaps these plot problems are why the play has been forgotten for so long, but maybe now is the right time to revive it."

for a previous production "Arch 468 aims to make challenging theatre and "Cuddles" certainly delivers that brief. Whether its message is a little too heavy-handed and its drama a little too one-paced may be debatable. What's not debatable is the commitment shown by two actors with their emotions dialed up to 10 for over an hour without a break." Full Review
for a previous production "Mike Poulton's adaptation hurtles through six years at the Court of St James in three hours of plotting and politicking. Like all the best historical fiction, it animates the familiar portraits and makes these names and faces human again, vulnerable and virtuous before our very eyes...Mr Miles may well gather a clutch of awards to rival Ms Mantel's, so good is he in making us love and fear Cromwell - as so many once did."
