What the critics had to say.....
BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, "This is raw, blunt stuff. It’s absorbing too." JOHN THAXTER for THE STAGE says, "With long hair and bare, sturdy legs below black shorts, Moore plays the narrator like a bruised heavyweight wrestling champion, ensconced in what seems to be an electric chair, his grim, charmless narrative relieved only by jaunty moments of ironic humour." JONATHAN GIBBS for TIME OUT says, "Paul Sellar's verse monologue gives a surprising dimension to what would otherwise be a straightforward underworld shocker...Intriguing and rewarding." FIONA MOUNTFORD for THE STANDARD says, "It's a considerable size of auditorium for just one performer, but Jonathan Mooore...has us gripped." CLAIRE ALLFREE for THE METRO says, "A fine performance from Jonathan Moore." SARAH HEMMING for THE DAILY EXPRESS says, "Paul Sellar's blistering script and Jonathan Moore's virtuoso performance have you gripped."
