“It’s a big ask to watch two men talking for two hours, yet this play about two cops is terrific and the acting is superb. ”

Ann Treneman (Times)

“The storytelling conjures a fast-moving sequence of events... Clever, imaginative... Themes already exhaustively explored. ”

Time Out (Other reviewers)

“The quality of the acting is intense, and Pearson resists all temptation to ramp up the slow-burn... All too predictable. ”

Other newspaper reviewers

“I struggled to be convinced by the posturing or the unbelievably extreme sequence of events... A second-hand air... Pedestrian. ”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“Plodding and soggy production of an American police drama ... All doughnut, no coffee. ”

Natasha Tripney (The Stage, Time Out)
