Product Description

Review

Incredibly, lawlessly funny… deeply and seriously engaged with femininity and feminism in the contemporary world… in its willingness to say the unsayable it brings theatre one step closer to life… Makes an awful lot of other plays look pallid, mealy-mouthed and, frankly, just a bit boring. --Exeunt Magazine

Achingly funny… witty, brave and galling writing… A harshly realistic, intelligent discussion of the complexities of love. --Time Out

A finely wrought study of toxic relationships… Spiky and unsettling. --Evening Standard

Punchy, shocking…it's the bravery in Jones' writing [that] makes this piece so exciting. --Huffington Post

Positively Pinteresque…sinister, funny and sexy by turns. --British Theatre Guide

The real thing: sexy, savage and as lively as a cat on a hit tin roof… Jones' writing is superb… this is new writing as it should be. --The Stage

I was lucky enough to see the play on stage at the Soho Theatre in February. The actors delivered it exceptionally and I was left with a feeling of longing when I walked away. The text itself is entertaining, dramatic, funny and, most importantly, terribly realistic. The dialogue is witty and effective.

I am in love with this play.

A shallow and crude take on Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf. Not worth the money, in my opinion. Never buy based on media reviews!

One of my favourite plays yet. Slightly revolting at parts, but incredibly truthful and very engaging.

Engaging yet annoying. Nicely written but lacking a certain something; a spark. Perhaps it comes to life better on the stage.
