‘It’s beautifully acted all round…  Hamilton's production lets you feel the wind's chill and the sun's warmth.’

(Matt Trueman, WhatsOnStage****)

‘Hamilton’s delicate staging catches the wit and care of this prescient little gem’

(Sarah Hemming, Financial Times ****)

‘Alice Hamilton’s production accentuates the writing’s surreal humour, while also savouring its moments of dreamy escapism… Above all Holman’s voice is given space to breathe, and a play that could feel modestly wistful instead seems charged with mystery.’

(Henry Hitchings, Evening Standard****)

‘Director Alice Hamilton brings a hushed timelessness to Holman’s words. Silence speaks volumes here, with the fluttering of fluted bird song bringing a kind of serenity to a production where the actors – performing in the round – look outwards.’

(Tom Wicker, TimeOut****)
