The Daily Telegraph

Dominic Cavendish

Porter’s writing is funny, fresh and appealing, as are the performances – delivered in a self-contained way behind identical desks in an artificial Eden. Worth looking in on.

The Independent

Alice Jones

It’s all rather slight but the concept of love through a lens, at once detached and obsessive, is a memorable and thoroughly modern one. Porter is clearly a writer to watch but it’s the charming performances of Rosie Wyatt and Harry McEntire’s spot-on comic timing that really make the play sing.

Time Out

A very peculiar mixture of twisted and twee that doesn’t quite work.

The Guardian

Lyn Gardner

If this is a true story, it's a very modern one about voyeurism and the fear of intimacy, about watching the world rather than joining in, about how it's possible to know so much about a person and yet so little and how it's sometimes easier to have a relationship with someone via a screen than in real life.

The Sunday Times

Maxie Szakwinska

The play’s quirkiness is frequently laboured, but Harry McEntire and Rosie Wyatt get you rooting for this couple drawn together by loneliness.
