**** (4 stars) 'Rob Watt’s production is as taut and claustrophobic as LaBute’s writing demands … the performances are terrific … Sean O’Neil and Janine Ingrid Ulfane are pitch-perfect.' Exeunt
**** (4 stars) 'This production is timely for its revival but timeless in its subject matter and makes for an engaging evening’s entertainment ...' The Public Reviews
'this is a bold opening statement of intent from a new company, directed with precision by Rob Watt.' The Stage
'This is the stuff of real-life relationships, the good and the bad and is rendered even more real by the excellent performances of Sean O'Neil and Janine Ingrid Ulfane.' Spoonfed
'I was worn out at the end of this show but excited about what I’d just seen. This is a timeless play despite having a very specific setting, and very much worth reviving ... at £12 it’s a screaming deal. In short: go.' webcowgirl.
'the tightly-coiled intensity of these two lovers battling against each other proves a thrilling watch.' There Ought To Be Clowns
'The tiny stage at The Pleasance suits the piece and Rob Watts directs with great insight. Sean O'Neill burns with nervous energy as Ben and Janine Ulfane is a knowing and despairing forever-mistress.' Monkey Matters Theatre Reviews
'Rating: Hot, heavy – this is rough & ready but satisfying. Just the way a girl likes it.' Theatre Slut
'The intimacy of the Pleasance theatre makes watching the proceedings at times almost voyeuristic and unbearable. But like all good drama you can't resist watching. ' Paul in London
