‘This comic psychological whodunit is a must for all lovers of the macabre.’ Evening News (Critics’ choice)

‘A Machiavellian play with enough labyrinthine twists to fox Theseus.’ Independent

‘Dark, and at times sinister, this off kilter thriller is an intelligent and entertaining foray into the nature of identity’ The List (Critics’ Choice)
