"Biblical drama isn't exactly big news in contemporary theatre, but Fraser Grace makes it seem urgent and bang up-to-date... The stage is set for an examination of man's relationship with his own true nature and with God. Is God crucial, and what happens when he is banished from our lives? It's unfashionable stuff, but exceptionally meaty and often gripping."

Lyn Gardner - The Guardian

"[On] the dangers of unquestioning obedience, of atrocity sanctioned by religon: the play resonates as loudly as mortar fire... At it's gutsiest this is a work of intelligence and audacity"

Sam Marlowe - The Times
