The play, which is written by Pablo Manzi, is a dark comic odyssey across the Americas exploring whether violence brings us closer together and what it takes to make a community. 

We are so happy to see all the cast’s & creative team’s hard work be rewarded with such positive reviews.

Enjoy some beautiful extracts from those reviews and do catch the performance which is running until the 22nd of January 2022 at the Royal Court’s Jerwood Theatre Upstairs.

★★★★★
The performances are excellent and the topics are important; I could have watched more.

Evening Standard

★★★★
Direction from Sam Pritchard confidently steers a strong ensemble cast of six, as they deftly multi-role between a revolving door of characters whose lives have been impacted by violence.

The Reviews Hub

★★★★
The majority of the six-strong cast play a number of different roles throughout the show. There isn’t a weak link among them, with each fully embracing the style and voice of the show throughout.

The Daily Telegraph

★★★★
Sam Pritchard’s understated production revels in the deadpan comedy and jagged stylistic shifts – each deftly realised tableau seems to inhabit its own tonal microclimate.
