★★★★ Reviews Hub
★★★★ The Times
★★★    The Guardian – “This fast-paced panto-esque comedy is damingly relevant now”

“Undoubtedly a play for modern times”

“Outrageous comedy and political commentary are combined to amazing effect”

“Northern Broadsides have produced a play that will make you laugh, make you think, and likely elicit a very personal response from everyone who watches it”.
