BLUE/ORANGE REVIEWS

"“Robert Bathurst is superb & Gerard McCarthy’s fresh faced Bruce ably matches him with a calm, charismatic self-certainty that flips into an equivalently demented doggedness.”
DAILY TELEGRAPH

“The dialogue flies off the stage like sparks from an arc-welder’s torch.”
DAILY EXPRESS

“McCarthy’s young, well-meaning doctor is an immaculately observed avatar of the Blair era’s Orwellian peak... his disillusionment is believable and heartbreaking.”
TIMEOUT

"McCarthy is a joyous revelation... He is definitely a name to watch out for in future and producers should already be hammering at the stage door to secure his services in whatever acting medium he may choose."
WEST SUSSEX GAZETTE

“Powerful, darkly comic and thought provoking, with gripping performances... One of the best plays I have ever seen.”
SUSSEX EXPRESS

“Heavyweight performances from Bathurst, McCarthy and Wilson.”
BIRMINGHAM MAIL

“Thrilling performances... McCarthy brings passion to his role; that he learns to play the game brings a chilling close to the play.”
REVIEWS GATE

“A masterclass in effective stage acting...All three actors deliver outstanding performances.”
THE PUBLIC REVIEWS

“Provocative and stimulating... Bathurst, McCarthy and Wilson inhabit and interrogate the roles (and each other) with a thoughtful, shape-shifting intensity that keeps them on their toes and the audience on the back foot.”
THE STAGE

“Gerard McCarthy gives a wonderful performance as the beleaguered registrar”
GUIDE2BRIGHTON

“McCarthy's Bruce is nicely underplayed at first, frustrated at the Kafkaesque mountains of paperwork that need to be ploughed through in order to simply help a lost soul finally bubbling over until his yelling umbrage would, if written up out of context, mark him down as a suitable case for treatment.”
CULTBOX

“Played with a fierce passion by Gerard McCarthy”
THE ARGUS

“Utterly engrossing... powerful performances from all three men.”
BUCKS HERALD

“McCarthy’s idealistic trainee fighting the good fight is a comic & tragic delight when he finally snaps.”
UK THEATRE NETWORK

“An exquisite level of talent... the acting is brilliant.”
THE YORKER

“Possibly the best show touring this season.”
SHEENGATE.CO.UK

“The play’s wincingly honest themes could make it an uncomfortable watch, yet thanks to the stellar cast, it is a compelling battle of wits, and unexpectedly funny.”
SOLIHULL NEWS

“Luscombe’s production is acted with formidable skill by Wilson, McCarthy & Bathurst.”
THE SCOTSMAN

“Riveting... McCarthy’s Bruce unravels like a pulled thread on a jumper.”
