“A superb revival of Mustapha Matura's 1974 darkly funny exploration of Trinidad...  It sweeps you up and leaves you breathless.”Time Out

“Paulette Randall’s beautifully observed production... a richly informative play that raises big questions about the nature of liberation, and is also hilariously precise about the shifting balance of power.” Guardian

"This theatre-in-the-round’s artistic rejuvenation under Paul Miller continues with this rare and rewarding revival of a blackly comical play by the London-based Trinidadian playwright Mustapha Matura."The Times

"Paulette Randall’s production: vivid, emphatic and humorous" Observer

“exuberant, funny and often charming.” The Arts Desk
