Reviews

“Jenkins’s play is much more than just a 1990s nostalgia trip. It’s a moving story of resilience, of changing landscapes, national trauma and, above all, friendship.” – The Stage

“At the heart of the play… is a profound sense of how rapidly England’s landscape has changed in the last quarter-century, and how powerless many ordinary people have felt in the face of those changes” – The Scotsman

“This show is one of the best at the Festival” – The Times
