Review:

Macmillan's play is at once harrowing and blisteringly funny, bleak and redemptive...It combines hyper-real dialogue with a quirky form that expands and contracts time before our eyes, creating the almost physical sensation of being hurtled towards an uncertain future. The piece s furious pace lives up to its title, leaving audience, and no doubt actors, feeling the need to pause for breath in a world that does not allow it.' 5* --What's On Stage

Duncan Macmillan's distinctive, off-kilter love story is brutally honest, funny, edgy and current. 4 stars --Guardian

Both uproariously funny ... and unbearably poignant... an engaging and poignant piece. 4 stars --Exeunt Magazine

Duncan Macmillan's distinctive, off-kilter love story is brutally honest, funny, edgy and current. It gives voice to a generation for whom uncertainty is a way of life... bravely written, startlingly structured. --Lyn Gardner, Guardian

Both uproariously funny ... and unbearably poignant... an engaging and poignant piece. 4 stars --Exeunt Magazine
