"The cast hurl the dialogue at each other as if it is a hand grenade, but the failure of the words to explode even during the final melodramatic moments is symptomatic of this play's ashen emptiness."
Lyn Gardner for The Guardian
"A fluid production"
Jonathan Lovett for The Stage
"Feeble and underpowered...There is occasional wit, but not nearly enough, and I watched with detachment and mounting boredom."
Charles Spencer for The Daily Telegraph
"Wilson's dialogue is often delicate, but more often thin. His looking-backward play lacks the obsessive quest for the moment life took a wrong turn...Simon Curtis's sensitive production has excellent performances."
Rhoda Koenig for The Independent
"The play is too wordy, but many of the words are as sophisticated and subtle as one would expect of the dramatist who would go on to write Burn This."
Benedict Nightingale for the Times
