Alice Hamilton’s exemplary in-the-round revival…

(Dominic Cavendish, The Telegraph*****)

‘This is the first major revival since the National Theatre premiere in 1989 and director Alice Hamilton does it proud. The five-strong cast offers a masterclass in authenticity.’

(Michael Arditti, The Sunday Express****)

‘Make haste to celebrate this superlative remounting of the late David Storey’s piece’

(Fiona Mountford, Evening Standard ****)

'Alice Hamilton returns to the Orange Tree after directing Robert Holman’s German Skerries in 2016. She demonstrates the same confident grasp of the power of stillness here. She brings out every detail of Storey’s finely textured portrayal of a marriage in later years, as the Pasmores move painfully through daily routines.'

(Tom Wicker, The Stage ****)

‘In Alice Hamilton’s finely calibrated production all the performances are lively.’

(Susannah Clapp, The Observer****)
