Writing for the popular cultural website, Lisa Munro referred to the play as ‘dark, gritty and engaging’.
She went on to describe Rebecca Alexander’s performance in the part of Gina: “In a compelling performance of a bewildered, frightened woman, her character’s plight brought audience members to tears as she played out the painful tension between love, fear and doing the right thing.”
Lisa continued: “The couple move about the stage together never quite fully acknowledging each other, almost as if in different dimensions, heightening the sense that although they share their domestic space, they are living in fear in their own worlds.”
