"Harold Pinter's directing is so sensitive and tactful that we can believe without question in the reality of this common-room life, which becomes indded life held in common."

John Elsom, The Listener, 6 August 1981.

"Stanislavsky would have been proud not only of Harold Pinter's direction in general, which gets classy supporting performances from Robin Bailey, James Grout and Prunella Scales, but of Edward Fox's Quartermaine in particular."

Benedict Nightingale, New Statesman, 7 August 1981.

"Harold Pinter, directing, invests the production with a beautifully measured pace and the idea of a meaningful sub-text which constantly blows away."
