What the critics had to say.....
NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, “Rising to chilling, belligerent climaxes and offering several first-rate performances." SARAH HEMMING for THE FINANCIAL TIMES says, "This disturbing and timely play holds you in its grip right to its sorry end." IAN JOHNS for THE TIMES says, "Highly watchable with Tanya Franks’s hard-as-nails Gina and Ray Fearon’s brooding Mark among a strong cast." MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "What strikes me is how sharply Williams delineates the different faces of British racism." CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "It combines accessibility with intelligence, raw drama with masterly construction."
