'The RSC's racy Roman rip-off is a laugh riot... It is a genuine crowdpleaser... the fun, in Porter’s version, lies as much in a steady stream of double entendres as in the enforced disguise.' Michael Billington, The Guardian ★★★★

'Overtly billed as inspired by the plays of Plautus, it lifts its main plot from the ancient author while simultaneously claiming to be 'lovingly ripped off' from the source material... But there are also echoes of Moliere, Feydeau and even Blackadder and Richard Bean in the supremely daft script by Phil Porter, who delivers classic farce characters in a setting that is both refreshing and resonant...  it never takes itself too seriously and is always anticipating the next laugh... the ensemble constantly feel as if they're fully behind the intent of the show, doing their utmost to deliver a rollicking night of freewheeling fun. In this, they emphatically succeed.'
