Quotes & Reviews

"Katie Posner's short, tight production ramps up the pace and tension... Charlie Covell's damaged Una is brittle and brusque... There's no denying the disturbing power of the dialogue... or the strength of the performances from Covell and a memorable George Costigan as Ray."

"George Costigan as Ray and Charlie Covell as Una handle the subject sympathetically... Nothing and no-one can hide and Lydia Denno's unforgiving set."
What's On Stage
"You could hear a pin drop..."
The Herald
"a pitch-perfect, intelligent realisation of this brilliant script... this is by quite a long way the best piece of theatre I've seen at the Theatre Royal's Studio... you will be engrossed, astounded and quite likely moved by this powerful piece of theatre."
British Theatre Guide

The Observer
