"an exuberant, likeable and snappy 80 minutes... The Orange Tree Theatre continues to re-invent itself with the freewheeling series of vignettes on the subject of death that are fired out with gusto by director Rania Jumaily," Time Out

"Rounding off a striking, regenerative debut season for Paul Miller as artistic director of the Orange Tree, Adam Barnard’s first full-length play is a puckish meditation on a fundamental theme: how we give purpose and shape to lives overshadowed by the knowledge of our own mortality." Sam Marlowe, The Times

"Adam Barnard’s kaleidoscopic, darkly playful and witty piece muses on our human awareness that time is always running out" Paul Taylor, The Independent 

“both wise and humorous... his thrust is that life is short and we have much to cram in, which is probably why Buckets runs at just 80 minutes.” Fiona Mountford, Evening Standard

“Paul Miller concludes his first season as artistic director with a playful meditation on mortality” The Stage

“What makes buckets so worthwhile is its humanity both in portrayal and intent. It makes you look anew at life as a gift, exactly as it is.” A Younger Theatre

“While it looks at dying, it celebrates life and presents a wicked sense of humour.” British Theatre Guide
