Reviews Beatrice Faust, “The Season of the Absurd in Review” in “Theatre” (1963) no.4., p.47: had ‘the most insistently good acting” of the plays in this season; “Graeme Henry has exactly the right approach to his actors. Without over-directing, his cast achieves both co-ordination and individualism in handling characters which are the most nearly natural of any in the season. This director’s approach to the play was less just, however, for he too directed for words, and a message”; praises Bill Walker.
