"Behind Nelson's] play lurks the daunting question of what we actually go to drama for. What, he asks, is its value if it doesn't modify and affect our behavior? ...Behind Mr Nelson's very good jokes reminiscent of an American David Lodge] lies a real fear that we increasingly divorce art from life and treat culture as something devoured rather than digested."
Michael Billington, The Guardian

"Funny and thought provoking...leaves one hungry for me."
Charles Spencer, Daily Telegraph

"A delight."
Paul Taylor, The Independent

"A gripping evening. The humor is based on genuine insight, and while the characters talks a lot, the unspoken tensions tend to be even sharper than the spoken ones. There are some painful moments and some oddly moving ones... But comedy wins out in the end..."
John Gross, Sunday Telegraph
