London Theatre

Joe Harmston's terrific revival is alternately precise and anguished. Phillips's clever folding of past and present... unfolds the action like a mystery to be solved.'

...ripe for revival but the story asks more questions than it answers... The few stirring scenes reach beyond politics... One wishes for many more of these moments.'

Phillips’s detailed and at times laborious drama doesn’t come to any startling new conclusions...but instead rather hedges its bets as it wends its meticulous way through elegant, occasionally overwritten scenes.'
