The production has received fantastic press on tour and sold out in Bath and Oxford
“I don’t suppose we will see a funnier or sadder play this year.
I WOULDN''T HAVE MISSED IT FOR ANYTHING”
“The play has AN ASTONISHING CAST with some of Britain’s best and most well known actors – including Richard E Grant (Withnail & I, Bright Young Things) as Hench, Anthony Head (Buffy Vampire Slayer, Little Britain) as his bon viveur friend Jeff and Amanda Ryan (Elizabeth I, David Copperfield) as Davina”
Wiltshire Gazette & Herald
“THE COMEDY IS AS SHARP AS EVER IN THIS CRISP NEW PRODUCTION Richard E Grant, as Simon, gives a finely crafted performance, as do Anthony Head as the journalist, Peter Wight as the brother, and Liam Garrigan as the tenant. Simon Curtis directs in an immaculate middle-class set, with a keen ear for irony in this clever play”
Western Daily Press
"Richard E Grant…presents an elegant, unruffled Simon and the supporting
cast is excellent"
Bristol Evening Post
"SHARP COMEDY HITS THE MARK"
"A thoroughly enjoyable play with a fine comic performance by Anthony Head"
FANTASTIC ACTING TALENT IN THIS THOUGHT-PROVOKING AND WITTY PLAY. The elegant Richard E Grant of ‘Withnail and I’ and some 60 other films, is perfectly cast as the central character Simon Hench. There are also some excellent performances from the supporting cast. Anthony Head gives a wonderful performance as the slovenly, obnoxious Jeff”
"Both funny and moving, this play makes for an enjoyable evening out, and the chance to see such fine performers at work is worth the ticket price" BBC
