"Quite simply a breath-taking production which captures the essence of the book in an innovative and exciting dramatic form, with two actors demonstrating absolute command of the stage"

"A bright and innovative experience: it could be an episode of The X Files with its semi-supernatural visual and auditory conceptualism; but then it could also be a Crimewatch dramatisation as the scenes being depicted could quite feasibly be real world events"
