Critic Reviews (10)

London Theatre
October 3rd, 2019

...it remains a shatteringly personal play and a deeply involving one... It puts the disability at the centre of the play in plain sight, and we can't look away. Nor, watching this finely-tuned production, would we want to.'

Peter Nichols' classic has rare truth...There are excellent performances from a cast including Toby Stephens and Claire Skinner, in a fine revival of Nichols’ humane play.'

Both savage and compassionate...Simon Evans's super-starry production...is both worthy tribute and a resounding vindication: the play, if anything, feels more savagely true than ever.'

October 3rd, 2019

Perhaps it’s a case of being a victim of its own successfully-made point: for a play about covering everything up, it certainly feels like we’re only getting the surface layer.
