★★★★ “about as close as theatre can come to being hugged for 70 minutes non-stop” The Independent ★★★★“as clever as Einstein, as cosy as a pair of old slippers, and a joy to watch” The Herald ★★★★ “just magical”What’s On Stage ★★★★ “a quirky and charming little play which is beautifully executed by Hesmondhalgh” Broadway World
