for a previous production "Human progress is unconventionally seen as less of an upward curve and as something more tangled...A wonderful piece of storytelling that is thought-provoking and often funny...An entertaining look at some serious questions about where humanity has come from and what it has become, reminding us disconcertingly that, just as the first human beings walked on earth 2.4 million years ago, one day will inevitably see our final footsteps."

for a previous production "A spell-binding one-man show...With few props and lots of imagination, it transports you back to the tough working-class world of a family...It starts slowly but, through the strength of Llewelyn-Williams' performance and writing, you are soon gripped by his tale as it builds in excitement, mixing heart-breaking tragedy with uplifting hope about human endurance...A beautifully crafted show that casts a spell that stays with you long after it is over."

“Butterworth’s phenomenal new play...Directed by Mendes, the production is gripping as it subtly builds up the tension but also provides plenty of laughs. It is full of storytelling...Folk tales also come into play...Like Butterworth’s previous hit 'Jerusalem,' this brings a haunting mood to the play that adds an epic dimension...The play reminds us that violence and passion cause wounds that are not so easy to heal.” Full Review
