A filthy, twisted Alan Bennett for the jilted generation’                                                                                                               THE FIX

Glorius…poetic…compelling… the audience frequently let out horrified gasps at his characters’ confessions… For those who find a perverse delight in the darkest depths of human nature – you’re  going to love it.’ * * * *                  SPOONFED

It’s Brilliant… League of Gentlemen by way of Alan Bennett… Black as treacle…very sharp, dark writing and a solid delivery from Williams. Expect slow, dark pacing, and the impulse to stand proud and applaud by the end.’  THE LONDONIST

Played with mesmerising intensity by Williams, a powerful performer whose presence reaches past the stage and grabs the audience by their throats… a compelling experience with some of the blackest laughs in town. If you like your comedy to be slightly traumatic, this could well be the show for you.’
