“Poignantly evokes the tide of history that turns us all, if we act on our prerogative, into bit-players in an epic drama. ”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“Sosanya, Gatiss and Tate are on almost throughout and milk plenty of humour from the mountingly silly chaos... we laughed. ”

West End Whingers

“Hilarious, poignant... A little cute, but excellent performances really bring it to life... Gatiss is impressive. ”

Daisy Bowie-Sell (What's On Stage, Time Out, Telegraph)

“Buoyant farce that testifies to the durable eccentricity of the British voting system and also charts the potential for disaster”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“Hilarious... Manages, too, to be the tragedy of an idealistic public servant... Gatiss - what a wonderful actor. ”

Michael Coveney (What's on Stage, The Stage, Independent)

“Comic without cynicism, it is unexpectedly touching... You really have to watch it. If only for the joy of seeing Mark Gatiss. ”

Libby Purves (TheatreCat, Times)

“By a long way one of the most enjoyable and accomplished plays of this year... A galactic cast and strong (apolitical) script. ”

Susannah Clapp (The Observer)

“The Vote is an ambitious idea, enjoyably executed, but hardly groundbreaking. ”

Mark Shenton (The Stage, London Theatre, Express)
