***** Yorkshire Post         ‘…There is an abundance of comedy, but once again what elevates McAndrew’s scripts are the moments, as there was at 
the denouement of A Government Inspector, where the rest of the production melts away and we’re left with a man on stage speaking from the heart.

***** Plays to see                ‘…one of the funniest, cleverest, most moving and thought-provoking nights at the theatre you will find anywhere… McAndrew’s adaptation is a joy.’

****  Observer                     ‘…banned Russian play from the 1920s is given a northern spin in this powerful adaptation.’

**** Whatsonstage            ‘… bold, ingenious and inventive.’

***   Times                           ‘… lively and immensely likeable.’
