"Ian Judge's fine, wittily knowing accounting of Vanburgh's great restoration comedy goes to bed in a big way. Judge's bedside manner, so to speak, is sly and intelligent from the outset." - The Independent
"A celebration of lust and sexual greed...a consistent visual delight" - The Daily Mail
"Lavish spectacle...entertains with wisdom and wit" - Time Out
"Ian Judge is no slouch when it comes to ensemble casts, linguistic dexterity and period detail. The beautifully choreographed curtain call is just icing on the cake. Worth the trip!" - What's On
"Ian Judge’s production has a spring in its step from the first; the actors plainly take pleasure in their parts, and the pleasure communicates itself to the audience." - The Telegraph
