Sub standard portrayals of the characters with the exception of Ken Stott as the titular role. Drab set and costume designs, wouldn't buy normal price tickets or recommend!


I think it’s in the lack of action and movement that the depth of the character’s depressions and reality of their apathetic lives shines through. I therefore don’t think it was boring, just quite scarily realistic. The production hangs off an already action-less script, and what they do with that within the acting is really poignant. It’s not a comedy and full of fun, but it’s not trying to be, and I took away a lot from both the script and the acting. It seemed that everyone around me was also moved by the performance and the content. I’d see Ken Stott and Laura Carmichael act again any day that’s for sure!


The newspaper reviews are, as usual, way off beam and out of touch with the audience like me who went to this production and paid to go as well. I have seen better versions but this one was very good and so thought everyone else around me in the theatre today. Thank you messrs, Stott, Friel, West and ensemble! Andrew, Sussex


The play does make you think and there is some good acting. However, it is punctuated by several boring bits. Dont pay more than £25 to see it.
