“Comes together with audacious clarity... Performed with a finesse and subtlety that makes it entirely engrossing... Very fine.”

Sarah Crompton (What's On Stage, Guardian)

“Lean, intimate triptych about language and love, delivered with incredible precision.”

Natasha Tripney (The Stage, Time Out)

“Potent and piercing, and the acting is impeccable. Subtle, highly skilled and richly rewarding.”

Sam Marlowe (The Times, The Stage, Time Out, Arts Desk)

“The most eloquent play about men and women I’ve seen for years... Makes us think about language itself.”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“Rhythmic yet naturalistic dialogue presents an intelligent yet accessible story of how love breaks down... Entertaining.”

Joe Vesey-Byrne (Independent)

“Elliptical... Gradually aggregates to a compassionate study of both the strength and vulnerability of that difficult noun. ”

Sarah Hemming (Financial Times)

“Noun-light, repetition-heavy... An intense production... Lynch and Eustache Jnr are mesmerising... Incredibly perceptive.”

Alice Saville (Time Out, Independent)

“Wearyingly cryptic and under-developed... Enervating and elliptical.”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“Despite green’s ability to write dialogue that is pointed and perceptive, I quickly got tired of going around in circles.”

Aleks Sierz (Arts Desk, The Stage)

“Fragmented exchanges by themselves don’t make a play... In a social vacuum... Perfectly good performances.”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)
