Confusing, Fluffy, Insipid, Overrated, Slow

See it if You watch it more for the solidarity towards neurodivergent actors playing the part

Don't see it if You expect a half decent execution of a whodunnit. It's too drawn out and falls short on pacing. I struggled to follow.

“As a piece of theatre ‘Imposter 22’ lacks propulsion and dramatic bite...’Imposter 22’ doesn’t do much to develop wider conversations about inclusivity either in the arts or wider society. It just wants to exist and have a bit of fun whilst it’s at it. There may be nothing wrong with that, but it just doesn’t make for a good show as well intentioned as it may be.”

“I think it’s reasonable to say that a project like this should be judged on different criteria to the average theatre show, and if it sounds interesting you should totally go and see it. But I think it’s also reasonable to acknowledge that taken as a stage comedy it’s quite possibly in too rough a state to be enjoyable to the casual punter.”

"It’s an admirable step forward in terms of arts access and representation, and, at its best, it demonstrates theatre’s immense empathic power."

“The show is bold, educational, full of winning performances and an important contribution to theatre’s responsibility to draw on and reflect the full panoply of the communities it serves.”

All That Dazzles (UK)

“A genuinely engaging mystery, a night of intelligent commentary, and a meaningful commentary on the treatment of learning-disabled individuals, ‘Imposter 22’ succeeds in being many things without any becoming the primary focus.”

“...while the production is brave and ambitious, its story is in need of fine-tuning.”

West End Best Friend

“ ‘Imposter 22’ is a hilarious whodunnit with a twist ending, which kept us enthralled in the character's antics throughout, whilst presenting a clear message on the power of a neurodiverse platform.”
