“The breathless, queasy pace of an out-of-control gurney shooting down a hospital corridor... Performances are universally strong”

Alice Saville (Time Out, Independent)

“Does succeed in making a slightly more gripping central storyline about loss and redemption, though some parts feel quite rushed”

Debbie Gilpin (Broadway World)

“A briskly ingenious evening (only 100 minutes) but one that robs the play of much of its unearthly magic.”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“Plays out like a flickering fever dream or a flashback, as his subconscious synapses fire and misfire.”

Matt Trueman (What's On Stage, Time Out)

“The reunion scene is beautifully done... Fitfully very interesting but... not vintage Cheek by Jowl.”

Paul Taylor (The Independent)

“Arresting, imaginative and resonant... An imperfect, shape-shifting enchantment.”

Sam Marlowe (The Times, The Stage, Time Out, Arts Desk)
