What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"[An] attractively strange and surprising 1935 play." What's On Stage

"An intriguing piece." Four stars. Guardian

"This neglected interwar play... strikes a resounding contemporary chord." Metro

"Engaging and well-judged... an intriguing period piece that speaks to our times in its tragicomic depiction of the anxieties, humour, despair and obstinate hopes of an age of recession." Independent

"[a] neatly amusing and unpredictable little curiosity." Public Reviews

"Revelatory... a fascinating, oddly familiar slice of office life... delicate and truthful." Telegraph
