“Unsettlingly relevant... detective thriller exploring moral issues in the burgeoning relationship between humans and technology.”

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

“What a thrill it is to see the theatre urgently: is what we do online devoid of repercussions in the real world? ”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“Compelling and disturbing, the play forces us to confront some of the most difficult moral issues presented by...cyberspace. ”

Sarah Hemming (Financial Times)

“This icily cold, deeply uncomfortable drama... poses a series of fascinating arguments that grip as much as they alarm. ”

Mark Shenton (The Stage, London Theatre, Express)

“Grows in stature the longer you look at it.”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“Short, dense, unpleasant... a collision between an extreme internet world... and a police campaign against paedophilia. ”

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

“Would an online haven offering the chance to indulge in virtual paedophilia encourage that activity in the real world?”

Dominic Maxwell (The Times)

“The staging is knockout... several reveals...keep things gripping and the subject matter is never less than unsettling. ”

West End Whingers

“Unsatisfying sci-fi drama set in a virtual underworld”
