I am a regular Courtyard person at present and thought that this was a brilliant and evocative play, extremely well-performed with blends of pathos, excitement and colour and making good use of the theatre's physical potential! The music is great and the lead players are just so good - in fact, I'm going again as it's a treat that cannot be missed. - Rick Ball

I'm not a regular theatre goer (yet). But I loved this play. I laughed, I cried, I was educated. - Benn

This was a play that i found difficult to watch at the time. the levels of horror and suffering which it portrayed were terrible and made for uncomfortable viewing. i remember saying to wife - i am just not enjoying this - and yet days later images and speeches still haunt me and i have been driven to re read some contemporary russian literature.
good performances all round, though on the night i saw it there were still a few fluffed lines and there was rather too much of the f word for my liking - especially in a translation.
so not a play i would want to see again but certainly not one i will forget quickly - Nigel Roberts
