    The Telegraph

    "a fresh, fleet, blade-sharp revival"
  • Four stars

    The Stage

    "...two hugely appealing performances from Karen Fishwick and Bally Gill as the star-crossed lovers. Together they convey the blinkered giddiness of the young couple’s infatuation, the arrow-slit of adolescence in which tomorrow morning seems an age away and no adult can possibly understand the depth of your pain."
  • Three stars

    The Guardian

    "...strong performances in Erica Whyman’s swift production"
