The show is a mess and a bore but it has also lodged in my brain like a nagging earworm. Much of the acting is of a very high standard. This is one for those whose idea of a stimulating night out is to be aggressively and repeatedly challenged.

Omran’s firebrand lead performance is something to behold. Sometimes, the whole thing risks being a little too smart for its own good, with the writing almost distracted by its own meta-commentary. But the play remains ... extremely entertaining and timely.
