“The playwrights toe the line, pushing the boundaries of properness to the point that one wonders if now is the right moment for a play of this kind. While the entertainment business keeps imploding, the piece refuses to properly utilise its thematic plotlines as full-on satire. All in all, it’s a quirky vanity project with a few comic gems and too many unwieldy junctures.”

"Packed to the brim with punchlines, and with three great performances at its core, 'It’s Headed Straight Towards Us' is another excellent outing for the Off-West End Park Theatre. Pacy, witty and laugh-out-loud funny, it’s a brilliantly entertaining evening."
