“An excellent play... premiered in Charlotte Gwinner’s pitch-perfect production... Highly recommended.” Paul Taylor, The Independent

“Shot through with big emotions, moral dilemmas and, best of all, quiet truths.” Matt Trueman, Time Out

"A great play about female friendship. Punchy, observant and funny." The Arts Desk

"an often viciously witty play, packed with great lines, which director Charlotte Gwinner delivers at a cracking pace. The cast (two of whom have transferred from the original Orange Tree production) are all superb, with Michelle Duncan bringing a nervy energy to the role as Bea. Charlotte Emmerson revels in some of the play’s sharpest writing as the flaky Alex; there’s also a remarkably assured performance from Joshua Sinclair-Evans, making his professional debut as Alex’s 15 year old son, Liam."
