Reviews Melbourne Times 5/8/87 Farrago 21/7/87 The Age EG 30/7/87. Critic Russell Walsh praises performances by Vanessa O’Neill and David Symons. He considered it was “a satisfying introduction” to the play and offered “some particular pleasures”, but also noted “most of the seriousness that this production suddenly realises in its last two acts feels uncomfortably tacked on instead of bringing to natural fruition a mature vision of life which pervades the whole play”.
