Thought-provoking, Relevant, Ambitious

See it if You like psychological movies as it feels like watching a good psychological two- hander.

Don't see it if You fancy watching a big show with fireworks ; this one is in a constrained space and requires being concentrated on a dialogue.

I can see why Turner thought it would be interesting to revive a play that looks at the effects of confinement and de-socialisation, and she does it well. I can also see why a lot of people wouldn’t want to see it right now.

There are notes of hope in this sombre story. Yet it’s 100 minutes straight through, and you can’t help feeling that The Twilight Zone or Black Mirror, say, might have unearthed the same buried tensions in less time.

Nick Blood and Amaka Okafor are both splendid...This play is a timely reminder of how male entitlement can fester and the damage it can cause.

Yet this early work by Kelly (his stage CV now also includes the RSC’s Matilda) remains an all too resonant portrait of the membrane-thin line between civility and barbarity. A horribly gripping 90 minutes.

In fact, it’s all a bit depressing – a crude depiction of violence that doesn’t say anything new while making me feel those all too familiar jolts of disgust and fear.
