Wasn't exactly bowled over by the reviews I read before seeing the show - but thought it was excellent and would thoroughly recommend.

Second act chemistry between Alan Cumming and Chris New was brilliant.

One of those productions where the atmosphere is such that you could have heard a pin drop.

Read somewhere that Cumming's portrayal of Max was too camp and that the piece was 'tub thumping' for being 'out and proud'. Didn't see it like that at all - just a portrayal of man's seemingly limitless capacity for inhumanity to fellow human beings.

Sobering and thought provoking.
