★★★★★ "Mark Conway gives an astounding performance. He holds the audience’s attention at every moment and imbues his character with a striking vulnerability and loneliness that makes you, at point, feel sympathy for him despite the horrible crimes he commits." - Broadway Baby

★★★★★ "Mark Conway is perfect as the protagonist – he draws the audience towards him. This is a masterful piece of theatre, the impact is still like a punch to the stomach. I’m not going to forget this play for a long time." - Stage Talk Magazine
