“Vital, fascinating drama” – The Guardian

"Yip and Lumsden are superb as they circle each other, drawing out a litany of betrayal and stupidity that wrecked one man's life and propelled the other to success." –  The Daily Express

“The two protagonists are very well played. Michael Lumsden is all silvery anguish as the western visitor and David Yip captures precisely his old colleague’s mix of courtesy and anger. It’s a play that puts Myanmar’s current tragedy in context and that deserves to have a longer life...” – The Guardian

“Engaging and powerful performances…a production well worth seeing” **** – West End Wilma

 “Yip was excellent as someone suffering from post-traumatic stress who has had 25 years to dwell on what happened to him whilst Lumsden builds the sense of guilt and shame until it finally finds release.” **** – West End Wilma

“Very moving…a play that could easily become an 80-minute political lecture is a play about people coming to terms with the past as old wounds are reopened, secrets uncovered and reconciliation sought for.” – British Theatre Guide

“Michael Lumsden who plays Christopher Gunness gives us an incredibly emotional performance of a man who deeply regrets he didn’t do more for U Nay Min who was sent to prison because of their relationship” **** The Artiscape

“Powerful” – North West End

“Engrossing” – One World
