The Telegraph (UK)
November 2nd, 2021

Lipkin brings an odious impervious swagger to Brian. And a bearded, bespectacled Skinner is cryingly funny as the decent, defeated Roger ... Emblemising not so much the state as the total disarray of men today, it’s arguably more bitingly topical than anything found at the Royal Court.
