...one of the best new plays in town...richly deserving a transfer up West...waspishly funny...
...entertains and disturbs simultaneously...the journey to an uncertain destination is never dull...a tribute to Torben Betts's ambition and vitality...
Torben Betts’ epic historical drama ranges from high satire to grand guignol horror, touching on themes of history, religion, philosophy, sexuality and psychology... every individual scene scores...
