Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The quality that makes Fo uniquely powerful [is] the ability to wring wild laughter out of insidious corruption."—Guardian

"Simon Nye's witty translation updates and relocates the play suitably close to contemporary England. Fo is that rare thing, a far-left playwright with a popular, comic touch. And his stinging attack upon the black arts of government cover-up, manipulation and mendacity could not be more timely."— Evening Standard
