"Hugely imaginative? I can't get it out of my mind."
"Highly intelligent and bursting with predictions of the path we are leading each other down."
A Younger Theatre
"Bold, playful and scorchingly ambitious... Hickson suspends the normal rules of realism to pursue big ideas... a remarkable play that... contains one of the best theatrical mother-daughter relationships of recent years."
"An audacious epic? a huge, ambitious study of co-dependency: mother and daughter, man and machine, east and west, Britain and empire."
