****

"An exciting, moving, witty and at times disturbing theatrical experience."

WhatsOnStage

 

*****

"The stakes are high and the tension is wound up to number eleven in Tom O'Brien's superbly cast and punctiliously executed production. A creative team perfectly met to imagine this 21st anniversary production with an ensemble of actors fated to realise it. Funny. Foul. Fabulous."

UK Theatre Web

 

*****

"an outstanding revival of one of Philip Ridley’s earliest works."

Fourth Wall Magazine

 

****

"darkly funny and impressively topical."

Mouth London

 

****

"Dynamic...explosive...well worth catching"

One Stop Arts

 

****

"Tom O'Brien's staging marks him out as an instinctive director with a very promising future ahead of him"

West End Frame

 

****

"a strongly enthralling experience."

The Public Reviews

 

"A very classy revival"

Time Out

 

"Pin-sharp performances and slick direction make this revival of Philip Ridley’s multi-award winning 1992 play a taut, claustrophobic and extremely compelling experience."

The Londonist

 

"..the standout is Nancy Sullivan as Sherbet, an invading force with a bright pink handbag. With perfect comic timing, she nails her character’s smiling malevolence.."

Exeunt Magazine

 

"The whole two-hour production is gripping...From Blake’s ominous vanity to Llewellyn’s disturbing innocence, the performances by all five cast members are admirable."

A Younger Theatre

 

"A rich array of disgusting behaviour, and it’s altogether a most entertaining experience."

Bargain Theatreland

 

"Just incredible. The cast were outstanding, superb story line. Can't recommend it enough!"
