You need a strong stomach for this one and an attentive mind to detail. The plot twists and turns in each of the 3 acts, as each character reveals more and more about themself. It is quite beautifully acted and the balance between the highs and lows is probably just about right, although the fight scenes are so realistic, I flinched. It is unusual to get such a compelling piece of theatre and makes such a refreshin change from gushing hollow musicals. This is a really intelligent play, which probes the minds of the characters as well as the audience. I still do not know who was guilty, if anyone, as I was left with the feeling that all the characters, which were all powerfully brought to life by a super cast, were just victims of life. Go see it. - USER: Whatsonstage.com (220.127.116.11)

I have seen many, many shows and there is nothing better than this. The raw power of the piece, driven by acting that is both purposeful, forceful and so, so realistic, amke this a real treat. I was enthralled for the whole piece. The actress playing the wife was so convincing it made me squirm. In fact, every single on eof them deserves an Oscar but I bet, becasue it is on teh fringe, few people get to see this wonderful piece of theatre. - USER: Whatsonstage.com (18.104.22.168)

This was the most harrrowing, realistic and disturbing piece of theatre I have ever seen. Superbly acted by the whole cast. I urge everyone to see this. - USER: Whatsonstage.com (22.214.171.124)
