Beru Tessema’s script is richly textured and artfully written, although the story seems to waver in its focus for too long and then throws out too much at the end. The performances paste over the script’s cracks and every actor is engaging and assured.

Lynette Linton’s production similarly radiates an easy, lived-in naturalism. And it produces a truly exceptional performance from Michael Workeye ... He’s a rising star.

The writing stalls only in the penultimate scene It's a flaw in what is otherwise a really wonderful new play. All in all, this is one of the most vibrant pieces of new work I've seen for years.

Michael Workeye is simply outstanding in his role and provides all the comic relief the audience needs. Definitely an actor to watch. To see an Ethiopian family story on a main stage feels like a triumph in itself especially when the writing is so brilliant.
