Critic Reviews (10)

Time Out London
July 4th, 2019

Kate O’Flynn and Lesley Sharp give stunning performances in Jack Thorne’s family drama...a heartfelt and likeable tribute to Thorne’s parents’ generation that takes too long to warm up to really make its point.'

July 4th, 2019

You marvel afresh at Thorne’s ease with dialogue...the subtlety is part of the charm... Yet you’re left with a curious sense that, as with history, this is a work in progress.'

This tender, bracing and beautiful portrait of family life is a throwback in many ways...a seriously good, warm-hearted play that had me hooked.'

while Jack Thorne’s new play is avowedly personal, always interesting and beautifully staged by John Tiffany, it left me wishing for a deeper connection between the family foreground and the historical background.'

...an intimate drama based on Thorne's own family, which resolutely refuses to fly...there are a lot of clever lines, but they often seem imposed on the characters rather than arising naturally from their thoughts.'

The Arts Desk
July 4th, 2019

The title promises a political emphasis but instead devolves into the sort of parent-child agon that Philip Larkin might well recognise...raises more questions than it answers.'

The Independent (UK)
July 5th, 2019

Lesley Sharp is painfully funny in this clever, intriguing production...Jack Thorne and John Tiffany's new play is both satire and celebration.'

The London Evening Standard
July 4th, 2019

Brooding, dysfunctional family charts course from Blair to Brexit...while it’s animated by serious ideas about progressive values and packed with quotable lines, it has a frustrating lack of focus.'
