REVIEWS

At the Royal Court Theatre in 2014:
★★★★★ “Jeremy Herrin’s brilliant production of Jennifer Haley’s deeply disturbing and very responsibly provocative play” The Independent
★★★★★ “This is mind-bending, it’s ingenious and it’s ethically challenging… Superbly cast and stunningly designed” The Times
★★★★ “Disturbing… and dramatically satisfying… Chillingly pertinent” Time Out
★★★★ “This is a compelling, profoundly disturbing 80 minutes of theatre, hammered home by some of the best visuals I’ve ever seen on stage.” Observer
★★★★ “A thought-provoking, deeply disconcerting success… a haunting and highly original modern fairy-tale that combines creepy enchantment with a whiff of sulphur.” Telegraph
★★★★ “Haley’s play at first challenges us to think the unthinkable, then almost seduces us into it. It is the very best kind of uncomfortable viewing.” FT
