The London Evening Standard
February 7th, 2023

"The whole thing is too gimmicky and too self-conscious in its juxtaposition of different eras to really work."

“We’re passing through a phase where dramatists addressing the question of gender identity seem to place uplift above all else. This is not a healthy trend. Fist-clenching activists may be happy enough; the rest of us are left starved of subtlety and insight.”

All That Dazzles (UK)
February 21st, 2023

"This is not a boy-meets-girl story with a happy ending. It is a boundary-smashing non-conforming tale of a genuine queer pioneer reminding us all that these real-life stories are not new."
