"Compelling viewing. Hugely recommended"Evening Standard – Critic’s Choice

"Another fine rediscovery....Sam Walters directs with understandable relish and this rare, gripping revival comes highly recommended" The Daily Telegraph

"The Orange Tree’s theatre-in-the-round seating arrangement has rarely been so well used as in the magnificent auction scene in which the neighbours go hell for leather to ruin one another." Time Out

"Sam Walters' production catches perfectly the high moral-ironic tone, and there's a first class performance from Cilve Francis as Hornblower" The Sunday Times

"This is a surprisingly angry and vehement play that, in Sam Walters' punchy revival, gets excellent performances." The Guardian

"This engrossing, intelligent production by Sam Walters demonstrates that there’s not only moral ferocity but theatrical fire in Galsworthy yet" The Times
