“Rather wonderful play... Played with fast, funny, touching honesty by them all: the girls are terrific... It captures life.”

Libby Purves (TheatreCat, Times)

“A revelatory piece... The entire cast so at home in their characters that they wear them as second skins... Must be seen.”

Sarah Crompton (What's On Stage, Guardian)

“Bleak and brilliant... What hits one is the sadness of the world it depicts... A portrait of wasted lives rather than a sex-romp”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“Well-judged revival... exactly the play to which we should be attending now... Bracingly uncensored and often very funny.”

Rafaella Marcus (The Stage)

“Terrific production... Uniformly ace cast... Atherton: altogether smashing... Bankes has a field day... A timeless talent.”

Matt Wolf (Arts Desk)

“A cherishably vivid 1982 bulletin from the mischievous and vibrant Andrea Dunbar... Lively and splendidly acted production.”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“Peppy and closely faithful to its original setting... Feels like a time-capsule, its jokes muddied with new realities. ”

Alice Saville (Time Out, Independent)

“Clear-eyed... The once urgency of the play gleams intermittently in its sharp dialogue... Dobson: a memorable stage debut.”

Susannah Clapp (The Observer)

“Enduring freshness, comic vitality and bleak authenticity... The performances are nuanced, deeply felt and satisfyingly complex.”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“An astonishing piece of writing... bleak, gritty, humorous and warm... The play's revival doesn't feel vital.”

Alistair Wilkinson (Broadway World)
