"Paul Miller’s enjoyable production bustles with youthful insouciance" Fiona Mountford, Evening Standard

"Miller’s production is extremely well cast. Genevieve Gaunt, in an impressive stage debut, plays Diana not as a calculating vamp but as a woman apprehensive about expressing her true feelings. Sarah Winters captures exactly the repressed ardour of the other female resident, and Alex Bhat, Joe Eyre and William Belchambers offer perfectly contrasted examples of masculine terror." Michael Billington, The Guardian

"Paul Miller’s adorable young cast produce a hoot of an evening with just enough heart." David Jays, The Sunday Times

"Paul Miller's revival of the play is deliriously funny from beginning to end... It's staggeringly good. It's riotously funny. Eighty years later, Rattigan's first big hit is a hit again." Dan Rebellato

"With his sparkling, affectionate revival of French Without Tears, Paul Miller delivers one of the year’s most purely pleasurable productions." Alex Ramon, Boycotting Trends

 "the piece has an evergreen freshness about it. It catches the evanescent, mood-shifting nature of youth itself, with all its lovable-hateful neuroses and unavoidable foibles." Dominic Cavendish, Telegraph

"Enormously enjoyable." Neil Norman, Daily Express

"Paul Miller’s energetic and appealing production is fleet and funny." Aleks Sierz, The Arts Desk

"Exuberant... Miller’s supremely well judged and brilliantly acted production fizzes from the start" The Reviews Hub
