★★★★★ “One of the finest plays of our time gets an urgent, riveting revival… Director James Dacre’s inspired adaptation brings this modern classic bang up to date” The Daily Telegraph

★★★★ “A brilliant, blistering moral workout” The Financial Times 

★★★★ “Joe Penhall’s blazing, blistering Blue/Orange is a powerful pill to take” The Daily Mail

★★★★ “Giles Terera gives an acting masterclass… an outstanding performance… He is an actor who completely embodies a character with real grace and ease.” The Stage

★★★★ “Michael Balogun gives a hypnotic portrayal in James Dacre’s thought provoking revival” The Times

★★★★★ “The drama’s rhythm sometimes feels like a thriller … this is lean-forward, thoroughly engrossing theatre. James Dacre’s pared-back, hands-off production allows the superb actors to shine” The Daily Telegraph 

★★★★ “Joe Penhall’s topical masterpiece feels as critically relevant as ever” WhatsOnStage

★★★★★ “The play is flawless, holding the audience breathless and motionless throughout and battered emotionally by the end… an essential piece of theatre that needs to be seen.” The Bath Echo
