    'a sizzling piece of comic theatre.' Nick Awde
    The Stage

    'the writing is witty, economic and warmly funny. I was charmed by the piece and felt refreshed by its confidently powered, often, overheating, engine.'
    Fringe Review

    'Playful and knowing, the ride is exhilarating but over too abruptly.'
