"I’d rather walk in blood than walk a slave
For he your Emperor!"
"Holds the stage with confidence… Bernays drives the story forward with great skill."Guardian
"Tristan Bernays's new play offers a crackingly good central female role, which puts the first-century British queen right at the centre of the narrative… accomplished writing."The Arts Desk
"A bloody, bawdy reimagining of the story of Boudica… Tristan Bernays's zesty play puts new flesh on the facts, but his main focus is firmly on Boudica's experience as a powerful woman in a man's world and the competing demands on her as a mother and a ruler... has a sprightly, muscular pace."Telegraph
"An epic, blood-soaked spectacle… Bernays' writing is beautifully clear and disciplined… a thrilling, challenging and thoroughly disturbing examination of one of Britain's bloodiest – and feistiest – patriots."WhatsOnStage
"Fast, foul and funny… Tristan Bernays writes with hints of the classics, yet it retains a sense of the modern. Bernays' words trip off the tongue, occasionally drifting into the poetic, and at other times into the coarse. Not only that but it's incredibly funny, with elements of Monty Python-esque humour running through."Broadway World
"Audacious, inventive and vivid… a show for fans of Game of Thrones… refreshingly, Bernays has written a play in which women get to do the exciting stuff."Evening Standard
"A huge amount of fun… a pacy, fun watch that'll thrill Game of Thrones fans."Time Out
