for a previous production "It propels you mercilessly into a hideous world of drug-fueled violence...These bad lads cavort with grace and swagger in ultra-violence set pieces that dazzle with their visual imagination...It's disappointing that the women are uniformly caricatured by the all-male cast...This crisply directed and fabulously choreographed production takes a thoroughly nasty bunch and charts their fall and rise with an intensity that makes you very glad they don't live in your part of the world."

for a previous production "Filthy and funny, this seven-man show is ensemble playing at its best...It's also carefully observed...'Toast' is on a very slow burn in the first half. With some scenes played out in the real-time silence of a smoking break, the longeurs are stretched to breaking point...Things pick up in the second half, with a major bakery breakdown to deal with...While 'Toast' offers a poignant snapshot of a lost past, it's not quite strong enough to deliver real bite."

for a previous production "One of the funniest, filthiest and most disturbing shows you're likely to see, packed with dry humour and guilty laughs. The superb solo performance from Waller-Bridge, who also wrote 'Fleabag,' is an epic achievement...Phoebe Waller-Bridge is so good at flipping audience emotions that it can occasionally feel as if we're being played like fish on a line – but hey ho, it's worth it. A masterly comic creation...Waller-Bridge wants this story to reach into audience hearts. She succeeds." Full Review
