"...like watching all the episodes of a fabulous five-part drama series in one sitting. You're gripped in the first scene. Then you're given time to breathe and collect your thoughts before the action resumes and the plot thickens. The pattern is repeated. As the saga unfolds you just can't wait to see the next one and all sorts of thoughts are going through your head about what twists are still to unfold in this 'will she, won't she?' epic." Richard Beck, Broadway Babe 5 stars "Hits home with a punch" Helen Jones, WhatsOnStage 5 stars "Clever, and very powerful...well written and perceived." Mark Dee, North West End
