“One of the foremost dramatic chroniclers of modern British life. Line by line, this is the best written of all Marber’s plays. You want to hang around its phrases (how often does that happen in the theatre?): hardly a minute passes without a satirical swipe, a gutsy joke.”
- Observer
“In Patrick Marber’s terrific new free adaptation, the play proves savagely funny, disturbingly dark and disgracefully sexy.”
- Daily Telegraph
