    What the popular press had to say...

    "The sheer energy and ambition of the piece are irresistible, while Rupert Goold directs a brilliantly inventive, unashamedly flashy production that adds greatly to the excitement...the Cottesloe auditorium has been spectacularly transformed. Many in the audience sit on bar stools at curvy counters on which the actors perform...marvellously well-acted and spectacular production "
    Charles Spencer for The Daily Telegraph

    "A gorgeously carnivalesque production...What we witness is both a partial family reconciliation and an acceptance of the need for positive action to save the planet. Far from being preachy, the play is humane, multi-stranded and generally engrossing."
    Michael Billington for The Guardian

    "Full of ideas and invention, it’s often hard work for the audience. But its messiness is brilliant, and Rupert Goold’s production positively drips with bravura...the production is frequently mesmerising."
    Henry Hitchings for The Evening Standard

    "A memorable, thought provoking and highly enjoyable evening."
    Aleks Sierz for The Stage

    "It has all the trappings of life, but no breath."
    Ian Shuttleworth for The Financial Times

    "It wobbled slightly, but pleasantly.."
    Patrick Marmion for The Daily Mail

    "What's impressive about the piece is its mix of zeitgeist-capturing ambition and irreverent refusal to lapse into tidy-minded preaching...scores highly on the Richter scale."
    Paul Taylor for The Independent
