    Financial Times

    "The cast, in Tom Wright's edgy production (supported by Amnesty International), are very strong, drawing you into their characters' plights. This is a powerful and disturbing drama about an important issue. I have rarely been so glad to leave a play - but that is the point."
  • The Guardian

    "The five characters we share the small, dark space with are completely compelling, their traumatic histories drawn deftly and without compromising the drama of their situation. Tension and human volatility are intensified in this extreme, condensed arena."
