“Breathtakingly strong performances” *****The Guardian

“The result is a deeply moving piece of theatre, which, sadly, retains its relevance”****Metro

“a portrait of moral complexity and ambivalence on both sides of the racial divide – angry and funny, bombastic and reflective, cruel and tender”****The Times
“The voices are handsome, the american accents are good and the singing is beautiful” ****Financial Times

“…in Talawa’s searing revival, there’s no missing the anger and moral passion that drives James Baldwin’s 1964 play”Time Out
