The Telegraph (UK)
September 25th, 2019

With First Ladies this compelling, who needs the Presidents? ...Wanamaker’s Helen is, no surprise, pitch-perfect... No two ways about it: a swift, smart, compelling evening.'

London Theatre

Both performers deliver immensely polished performances despite the mounting improbabilities of its desperate plotting...but there's very little happening below the surface: an empty play and an empty spectacle.

...shafts of light are lost in dialogue that is often inert, and generally unrealistic... Amidst all this Wanamaker and Cvitešic still shine, holding the attention.'

Cvitešić and Wanamaker really rock. Excellent acting in a play that tickles the senses by morphing from one genre to another.'
