REVIEWS & AWARDS

“I cannot say I liked it, because I loved it. Gary Condes’ attention to detail is impressive and it’s very much brought to life by an engaging cast, bringing out the naturalistic dialogue and lacing it with dark, sharp humour, while the awkward silences are perfectly paced. A fascinating and thought-provoking piece of theatre.” 
★★★★★ LONDON THEATRE 

“Director Gary Condes has an eye for nonverbal details that make clear every unspoken grievance and implicit insecurity, making this a finely-performed character piece engaging and satisfyingly spiky. Style and strong characterisation lift his production of LaBute’s bitter black comedy.” 
★★★★ THE STAGE 

“Under Gary Condes’ direction, the production retains a sharpness that keeps driving the story forward but retains an emotional core. With stellar Performances all round, this revival is clearly of a high enough quality to warrant consideration for an extended life after this short, off-West End run.” 
★★★★ BROADWAY WORLD

“Well-crafted and well-paced direction – no line is thrown away and no moment left to linger. It is a strong, smart, infinitely relevant revisiting, one which brings peals of laughter at the black   relationship comedy.”  
★★★★ THEATRE BUBBLE

“Gary Condes’ cleverly interpreted show creates each scene with finely balanced precision, colourful and smiles on the outside whilst deep-rooted emotionally underneath.”

★★★★ LONDON THEATRE

“This revival is indeed very funny, treading a thin line between parody and pain. This comic look at the vagaries of love is painfully pointed in Gary Condes’ production.”  
★★★★ BRITISH THEATRE GUIDE

“A little gem about the fickleness of human nature. Gary Condes nails the tone bringing out the tragic and comic.”   
★★★★JEWISH CHRONICLE

“Really enjoyable, really stylish. Very much of its period and I thought the period was really beautifully caught.” 
SIR NICHOLAS HYTNER  
Artistic Director of Bridge Theatre – London & Former Artistic Director of The National Theatre. 

“Gary Condes’ production brings together a witty script, remarkable stage design and powerful performances creating much force on the stage. An ordinary story about two common individuals it may be, yet it is a play that deeply touches human hearts through the ups and downs of life.”   
★★★★ PLAYSTOSEE

“A Beautifully subtle look at a relationship in slow collapse. Both actors manage the intimacy impressively, from their first appearance on stage they were both utterly in the skins of their characters. This very believable and sincere struggle between the pair doesn’t offer solutions, it only proves that we have no choice but to keep learning. A real treat.”  
★★★★★ THEATRE BUBBLE

“Director Gary Condes rehabilitates the play as a quirkily intimate portrait of lovers at their most vulnerable.”
