★★★★★ “A real explosion of 21st century theatrical energy, timely, well-crafted, and unforgettable.” The Scotsman  

★★★★ “Familiar, horrifying, ludicrous, fascinating. The playwright’s clever use of word association propels the story at an astounding speed and the cast, fantastic in every way, delivers an evening of artistry equalled by the director and the design team…a breathless and impressive ride. Do not miss this extraordinary production.” NY Theatre 

“Shakes the daylights out of the smarmy idea of freedom commonly given lip service today” The New York Times  

★★★★ “strong direction ensures that every vicious nuance is as clear as Keith McIntyre’s cartoonish, line-drawn design…A production of great power and resonance that takes Betts’ caricatured world and breathes life into it, bearing a scary resemblance to our own.” The Stage 

★★★★ “Perhaps the greatest education we can receive is a sudden reorientation of perspective, and Torben Betts’ play makes this alteration of viewpoint with extraordinary efficacy…The abstractions of design, movement, costume and sound juxtapose nicely with the real human pain that we see” The List
