By Open Air Theatre

"the energy and wit of it scorch the night air...INSPIRED...John Gay’s lowlife brilliantly reborn..." Times * * *

"A bawdy breath of fresh air" Daily Mail * * * *

"Jasper Britton and Phil Daniels offer outstanding portraits of twin social predators" "...DELIGHTFUL..." Guardian * * *

"the tears, fears and recriminations of this underworld soap opera are as salty and raucous as ever in this roiling Hogarthian spectacle" Time Out * * * *

"A REMARKABLE EVENING" Whatsonstage.com * * * * *

"Mingling caustic commentary with creative zest, the production ends with a coup de theatre that's the last word in gallows humour." Independent * * * *

"(Lucy)Bailey and (William) Dudley are unafraid to tackle open-air spaces head-on with audaciously tone-changing visual concepts, and once again their chutzpah pays off with this fine slice of Regent’s Parklife" Financial Times * * * *
