Press round-up:

“Paul Wills’ attention detail is a major contributor to the emotional charge of this production as he transforms the stage into Herb Tucker’s dilapidated bungalow. In true naturalistic style, the audience forms a ‘fourth wall’ to a lounge and kitchen where every item has been carefully selected, from the curtains to the coffee pot. As a result, every moment is magnified as we get a real sensation of peeking in on somebody else’s world”. – THE PUBLIC REVIEWS,  POPPY HELM

“Paul Jepson has crafted a fast paced, funny and touching play with a superb set by Paul Wills and engaging performances”. – WHATSONSTAGE.COM,  GLENN MEADS

“Paul Wills has designed a large but rather dull and run-down apartment with some subtle period touches that perfectly fits the personality of its occupant.” – THE BRITISH THEATRE GUIDE,  DAVID CHADDERTON
