What the popular press had to say...
"The main strength of Bijan Sheibani's revival lies in the performances...the mixture of poetry and whimsy makes the play unsatisfying and Sheibani's elegant, reverent production causes what is in fact a short piece to seem long. "
Henry Hitchings for The Evening Standard
"A fine-tuned production by Bijan Sheibani which, even though a little short on humour, shows desperate people yearning to make contact across the chasms that divide them...Of all Pinter's plays, this is the one that speaks most directly to common experience and it is good to see it so sensitively revived. "
Michael Billington for The Guardian
"I would advise anyone in the grip of depression to give this play a very wide berth indeed. The sheer misery of the piece strikes me as both malign and potentially infectious. Bijan Sheibani’s production, with its modishly minimal design by Bunny Christie, is efficient rather than inspired."
Charles Spencer for The Daily Telegraph
"In a slow, portentous production that, even across 75 minutes, feels both like it loops endlessly around itself and goes nowhere."
