★★★★★ “Williams’ style is often described as poetic realism with its everyday rhythm of rhetorical repetition. James Dacre shows that what he actually conjures is the heightened intensity a chef creates as he reduces a sauce in cooking.” The Independent 

★★★★ “A neatly wound but fully loaded enquiry into Williams’ tragic figures” Exeunt

★★★★ “The fine detail of Dacre’s production” The Guardian 

★★★★ “Simmering ensemble scenes” The Times 

★★★★ “A groundbreaking collaboration… the whole ensemble works together beautifully to wring all the anger and tenderness from Williams’ painful, haunting play.” The Daily Telegraph

★★★★ “An illuminating production” The Guardian

★★★★ “A sharp, slick production” The Newcastle Chronicle
