"David Mercatali directs a nigh-perfect production... Max Dorey contributes a gorgeously detailed design, a world of damp patches and hard furniture on a spelk of stage extruding across the tiny venue. Its transformation from living room to pub is ingenious, and washed over by Christopher Nairne’s melancholic lighting and sound designer Max Pappenheim’s birdsong..."
Stewart Pringle, Exeunt Magazine
"Yolanda Kettle as the love interest who is determined to get out sparks and fizzes beautifully, her dynamism lighting up Max Dorey’s deliberately claustrophobic, dilapidated cottage set."
Honor Bayes, The Stage
"Doyle’s dialogue is instinctive, her characters, distinctive, and her motifs, ripe with meaning. David Mercatali’s production is just as fine: easily designed by Max Dorey, and performed with both sizzle and lyricism by a strong cast."
Matt Trueman, Time Out
"Doyle’s play tells us, very touchingly, what it is like to be young in rural Ireland today."
Michael Billington, The Guardian
