“A debut of astonishing maturity... diffracting hackneyed questions of race, justice and revenge into a subtle family drama. ”

Kate Maltby (The Times)

“A debate, dramatic though it is in Turvey's taut staging... Sumbwanyambe puts both sides with real eloquence and even-handedness”

Matt Trueman (What's On Stage, Time Out)

“A juicy topic... A highly intelligent and thoughtful piece... an examination, rather than a wholly satisfying drama. ”

“Turvey’s skill in marshalling four strong performances can’t hide the undisciplined feeling of a script that feels baggy. ”

“A serious, if rather unvaried, debate... Economically staged... and the four actors are good... A promising first play. ”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)
