I have to agree with the other reviewers that the WOS review doesn't do this excellent production of a very entertaining play justice. The writing is excellent for the most part, though it would benefit from greater subtlety in a few places, and the cast are superb with some wonderful performances. Definitely worth a look. - Paul Vines

Brilliant! All strong actors - believable too - had me almost joining in! Great character study. Congratulations to Ayub Khan-Din, Mark Babych and the cast. - Sles Wrightson

I too find myself clearly thinking the play is a breath of fresh air and a piece of theatre that we so need here in the UK. It was a storyline and acting at its very best and I think it makes us realise that all families are disfunctional somewhere or other.
I'm sure this play will go from strength to strength. - Elliot Doberman

what a pathetic review for a superb play and production. I do get annoyed when such lazy journalism is allowed to be published - does Julia Taylor really think this is acceptable? My family and I found this to be a brilliant portrayal of a family dealing with impending grief - funny touching and poignant and a wonderful night in the theatre. Your review is lazy and fails utterly to capture what is a superb evening in the theatre. - oscar miller

It's an amazing production, poignant and funny, this review doesn't do it justice, one of the best plays I've seen for ages and I've seen plenty. Brilliant and real performances all round, impossible to single out but Julie Riley and Judith barker are both genius performances.A bland review for an extraordinary and exceptional play. - Martha whiteley
