"A delectable black comedy... I have not seen a more imaginative, inventive or disturbing theatrical vision."
"Fiendishly clever, deeply unnerving and scalpel sharp."
"A small but perfectly formed play... delicious performances."
"Pacey, sardonic and performed by four well-balanced, briskly comic actors."
