Press night went well, the first weekend is done, and the first reviews are starting to appear on the web.

I’ll update this post as I find more.

✰✰✰from Whatsonstage.com: “there is a genuine sentiment behind this play that makes it touching.”

(I do note the “average reader rating” is a rather more enthusiastic five stars ✰✰✰✰✰ … from a comment describing the play as “cleverly done, hysterical but also very moving.”)  Read the full review

✰✰✰from Exeunt Magazine: “Joe Fredericks’ production excels is in its sense of fun and in its sympathetic portrayal of a relationship that doesn’t quite fit social boxes” Read the full review

British Theatre Guide calls it “a well crafted study of what true friendship means” Read the full review

The Stage seems to be underwhelmed. Not an unfriendly review, but not a rave either, though does speak of “a pleasant blend of humour and sentiment.” Read the full review

Over on his blog, PaulinLondon calls it “a reflective evening at the theatre…[and] an opportunity to catch two excellent performances and some new writing in the West End.” Bit sad he didn’t do one of his audioboo reviews, but still glad he came! Read the full review

Extra! Extra! references “a strong creative team, taut, assured writing and compelling performances” in a lengthy and very positive writeup, touching on loads of detail and nuance, with some excellent analysis that suggests the writer really connected with the show. That’s really nice to see. Have a read.

So, up to you to decide for yourself. Tickets still available via the Jermyn Street Theatre website or call the box office at 020 7287 2875
