    Press Review Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Friday 6 July 2007Performance 4-7 Jul 07

    ‘To put it tactfully, I was glad that the “crazy” Gallic voiceover appears only intermittently – a little of that sort of thing goes an awful long way. But this is a cavil about a show that right up to its deranged, spaghetti western conclusion is…

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Friday 6 July 2007Performance 4-7 Jul 07
