Time Out

Caroline McGinn

First-rate physical performances humanise the slick, horrific moral story.

The Stage

Natasha Tripney

The satirical bite of the play is sometimes blunter than it might be but Hunter is, as ever, a captivating and utterly convincing stage presence and the cross-gender casting ... often heightens the horror of the situation making for a production that is by turns repellent and compelling.

The Guardian

Lyn Gardner

The entire tone of the piece is feverish, too, and even if the production fails to make the shift from high comedy to grim tragedy, it's still [a] visually arresting and unsettling.

David Jays

Be warned, fistfuls of red pencils are harmed in this production: you’ll dread hearing them snap.
