Reviews

The Evening Standard

Fiona Mountford

Set in an England that is recognisable enough for us to settle back happily to watch but disconcerting enough to startle us constantly ... this is a vision of our past or our future, I'd certainly rather see it on stage than live there myself.

The Guardian

Michael Billington

Clearly the play is a parable, but one that works because of the openness of King's central symbol ... the play is an attack on the danger of fundamentalist certainties. What stops it toppling into gothic absurdity is King's sharp sense of humour, narrative drive and realism: she locates her dark fable in a plausible world where cattle have to be fed, leeks harvested and meals cooked.

The Stage

Natasha Tripney

However, atmospheric as it is, the play loses power the more it explains itself and its ideas. It works best when it’s at its most opaque and cagey, when it drops hints and clues, when it sketches in pencil rather than in ink.

The Times

Dominic Maxwell

Handled wrong this could be quite the ripe dystoptian melodrama. Indeed, you wait 90 minutes to see where King is going to take her fascinating ideas next only to find that the slow simmer leads to an overcooked conclusion. And yet what a simmer it is.
