“Beguiling, disorientating, ambitious.. Rich, haunting, technically dazzling... Three extraordinary leads... sensuous, unsettling”

Andrzej Lukowski (Time Out)

“Not for the fainthearted... Precise, cleverly staged and powerful drama supported by superb acting.”

Ann Treneman (Times)

“In Mitchell's tightly-coiled and brilliantly acted production, the darkness is always compelling... Devastatingly effective.”

Sarah Crompton (What's On Stage, Guardian)

“A sophisticated tapestry of generations and emotions.”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“Strikingly written and hauntingly performed... Formally invigorating... Morahan, O’Flynn and Leonce are magnificent.”

Natasha Tripney (The Stage, Time Out)

“The way conversations overlap, intersect, even chime exactly as if words are echoing down the decades, is a compositional marvel”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“Powerful, unflinching.. Mitchell draws performances of extraordinary intensity and precision from these actresses... Recommended”

Paul Taylor (The Independent)

“Startling theatrical triptych... odd, arresting and, in Katie Mitchell’s immaculate production, highly original in its form.”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“Excruciating, yet devastatingly brilliant... The aesthetics of Mitchell’s production are outstanding... exceptionally strong.”

Aleks Sierz (Arts Desk, The Stage)

“The performances are beautifully modulated... A searing and tender piece. And amid the bleakness there is humour.”

Sarah Hemming (Financial Times)

“Intriguing new play... Grim humour prevents it from becoming too depressing... Beautifully poised and rounded characters.”

Neil Norman (Express, The Stage)

“Skewering... Morahan brilliantly vanishes... Leonce gives a beautifully judged performance... O’Flynn is remarkable... Riveting.”

Susannah Clapp (The Observer)
