ACTING"Luke's outburst in the second act, played distressingly well by Michael Yale is perfecly paced and genuinely shocking" Grace Under Pressure (Old Red Lion) - Time out (Critic's Choice)
"Michael Yale's book is very strong, with more than a touch of Carla Lane...Complimenting a very fine script musical numbers that capture a wit and energy that reminded me of Lionel Bart's work. This is high praise indeed, but the material really is that good." This Little Life of Mine (Park Theatre) Broadway World ★★★★★
"Creator Michael Yale delivers an admirably well written and structured play, never sensationalising but presenting the shocking facts accurately and unflinchingly."
