Ambassadors [West End]

“Quiet, gentle two-hander... It’s the tentative (anti) romance for 21st century London life and it is, quite simply, magnificent.”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“Gorgeous... wry, funny and touching... Real depth of insight, humour, compassion and a keen sense of the ridiculous.”

Paul Taylor (The Independent)

“One of the funniest, most touching, and at times most enthralling-excruciating seduction scenes you’ll ever see on stage.”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“Their fumbling efforts are incredibly funny but sometimes so truthful they're almost too painful to watch... Vividly observed.”

Sarah Crompton (What's On Stage, Guardian)

“Tender, funny and resonant two-hander... Eldridge is a writer of compassion.”

Natasha Tripney (The Stage, Time Out)

“Findlay’s production has the right jagged rhythm... The two performers hit exactly the right note... Leaves you caring deeply.”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“Turns expectations topsy-turvy... Both are compellingly acted – and danced... The small-scale monsterised.”

Susannah Clapp (The Observer)

“A crackling warts-and-all romcom... An awkward comedy which starts near the knuckle and stays there... Refreshing.”

Caroline McGinn (Time Out)

“Tender, pleasingly unsentimental... Wry humour, warmth and compassion... Delicately threaded through with painful laughter.”

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

“A lovely piece of work... Eldridge is less well known as a writer than he deserves to be.”

Ian Shuttleworth (Financial Times)
