Great Britain Reviews

Astounding. The most detailed stage satire I have ever seen. * **** Financial Times *
A timely look at the tangled relationship between the press, politicians and the police. It's barbed and very funny. * **** Evening Standard *
Blessedly funny. Bracing topicality. Richard Bean doesn't do things by halves. * **** Guardian *
Laughter-making on an industrial scale. The NT is on exhilarating and exemplary form. * **** Independent *
Terrific acting and slick direction. Bluntly entertaining comedy. * **** Telegraph *
