Great staging, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you enjoy captivating two handers. The play sizzles with tension, yearning and teenage confusion. William Robinson is especially brilliant

Don't see it if quieter pieces aren't your thing. It's a slow burn of shifting power dynamics, with comments on masculinity, sexuality and class
