"A fantastic collection of plays, giving Shakespeare a new twist! ... So skilful and silly, they are a gift to actors and a tonic for audiences. Nobody else is doing this. They should be seen" ~ Alan Bennett from the Foreword
"I am no stranger to Shakespearean parody ... but reading Pontac I am (only slightly) mortified to find that he can write cod Shakespeare much better than Peter Cook, Jonathan Miller, Dudley Moore or myself" ~ Alan Bennett, The Independent
