“Wow... Coruscating examination of power structures both artistic and personal... Garai blazes with passion and conviction.”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“Formally inventive, vividly written new play about power, sex and art... Garai is spectacular.”

Natasha Tripney (The Stage, Time Out)

“An assault on the stage... savages the theatrical status quo... Delving, fiery scepticism. Of a truly theatrical kind.”

Susannah Clapp (The Observer)

“There are bits of McIntyre’s playfully deadpan production so devastatingly perceptive that I felt my flesh being ripped off.”

Andrzej Lukowski (Time Out)

“Head-spinning... Unflaggingly inventive... I found myself by turns goaded, irritated, delighted, challenged... Garai: searing.”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“Unflaggingly provocative... Hickson's tricksy play is handled with witty aplomb in McIntyre's superbly acted production.”

Paul Taylor (The Independent)

“Momentous... The dazzling script is a joy in the hands of the bold company. Garai alternates demureness with passion.”

Cindy Marcolina (Broadway World)

“Restless, relentless... A Pirandellian hall of mirrors that constantly throws down the gauntlet about the theatre itself.”

Mark Shenton (The Stage, London Theatre, Express)

“Deconstruction run rampant.”

Matt Wolf (Arts Desk)

“Speaks only for the narrowest of demographics: a notional angry , unloving, sexually militant mythoholic 24-year-old.”

Libby Purves (TheatreCat, Times)

“Has to be one of the most irritating, self-involved, intellectually pretentious pieces of theatre on the planet.”

Ann Treneman (Times)
