"The most astonishingly confident debut show I've seen for a long time...a cheeky witty evening that has all the thrill of a rapid ride at the funfair,

Lyn Gardner. The Guardian. 4*



THE SECRET RAPTURE by David Hare. Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue. Bill Kenwright Limited.


"This could be one of the most important revivals of the year. Guy Retallack's calm but harrowing production...

the final effect is pity and terror: two old friends you seldom meet in contemporary plays."

John Peter. The Sunday Times.
