"The best new English play since Benefactors. It asks all the right questions while managing also to be a bittersweet comedy about impossible sexual differences."-Punch
"Under a deceptively comic surface, Anthony Minghella's play offers a dark and troubled view of both Eastern and Western values."-London Guardian
"An extremely funny play but also a scathing indictment of our so called civilized society."- Time Out
"Strong, brave, uncomfortable, provocative."-London City Limits
