Critic Reviews (7)

The London Evening Standard
November 11th, 2022
For a previous production

"The writing is intelligent, the performances strong. But the characters have little external life and no reliable inner existence. This makes the play suffocating. "

The Telegraph (UK)
November 11th, 2022
For a previous production

November 11th, 2022
For a previous production

"This is a dark, witty yet truthful production with solid, captivating performances by Humphries and Austin. It's just a shame that we're not let in or feel like we can care about these two individuals until the final moments."
