User Reviews

The Times (11Jan01): [Dusty Hughes] has the wit and flair to keep what might be a dour evening enjoyably alive.
The Daily Telegraph (11Jan01): Compared with the in-your-face work of today s bright young things, [Dusty Hughes] s intelligently constructed, debate-fuelled play seems almost quaintly old-fashioned.
