REVIEWS

"Unarguably one of the best dramas of the twenty-first century" ~ Guardian

" ... tender, touching, and blessed with both a ribald humour and a haunting sense of the mystery of things ... one of the must-see events of the summer' ~ Telegraph

"Jez Butterworth's gorgeous, expansive new play keeps coming at its audience in unpredictable gusts, rolling from comic to furious, from winsome to bawdy" ~ Observer

" ... storming ... restores one's faith in the power of theatre to make a really beautiful noise and on a scale that is both epic and potentially popular" ~ Independent
