"Rises to an inspired climatic crescendo of pandemonium and panic... A night of true escapist pleasure."Evening Standard
"In all of drama there is no characters so busy and so petty, so frantic yet so absurd as the sex-obsessed men and women rattling round Feydeau's belle-epoque Paris... How artfully Feydeau raises our expectations and how splendidly he fulfills them."The London Times
"An unassailable masterpiece."The Guardian
"A crowd-pleasing rib-tickler."What's On
