‘It is magnificent’
‘Rubasingham directs a superbly fluent and entertaining production with outstanding performances’
‘Perfectly pitched between the comic and the serious’
‘A clever, mischievous little pleasure with the sharp teeth of a kicked corgi’
‘Pure theatre, doing something only theatre can. It should, as Maggie would say, go On and On’
‘Genuinely fresh and irresistibly mischievous… Sovereign fun’
