‘Alice Hamilton’s production was so well acted that you had to pinch yourself to recall it was pretend’

(Dominic Maxwell, The Times****)


‘Alice Hamilton’s excellent production is like a minor-key version of Jez Butterworth’s Jerusalem

(Michael Billington, Guardian****)


‘All three cast members do impeccable work… there’s eloquence in each tiny twitch of the lip, each little facial flicker – there’s not a gesture here which is unconsidered.’

(Natasha Tripney, The Stage ****)


A gentle wistfulness, coupled with a surprising tenacity, suffuses Alice Hamilton’s confident production. Hugely recommended.’

(Fiona Mountford, Evening Standard ****)

'You could hardly wish for a more beautifully modulated staging than Hamilton's, which is suffused with the fading sunshine and the faint chill of crepuscular regret'

(Sam Marlowe, The Arts Desk)
