A mythic, mockingly male, highly comic and exhilaratingly violent story, a sort of self-conscious combined rip-off tribute to Pinter, Mamet and Tarantino with odd patter-style echoes of music hall and the loosening of old East End values in the new rock and roll and criminality... the play has the sting of originality and the power of voodoo... Unmissable. FIVE STARS --whatsonstage.com
Set to become a smash hit all over again... It is the combination of strong plotting and zinging dialogue that makes this play so addictive and disconcerting. --Telegraph
Underneath the virtuosic language and the dark laughter, this is a play about damaged people... You won't find much better ensemble acting than this, nor a play that so effectively punctures the pretensions of a hermetic gangland culture. --Guardian
Mojo takes on a memorable sense of consequence, a vivid sense of damage. Something stylish becomes substantial. --The Times
Butterworth's rock and roll Soho gangster comedy has a super-hot cast, a filthy mouth, and more pungent moments than a hangover on Berwick Street. This is as sharp as the West End gets.
Sublimely confident, bristling with masculine energy and menace... A confident and ballsy play which explodes its vision of the perils of hopeless, cocksure, violent, seedy criminality with volcanic power. --The Stage
