**** Guardian: A bold examination of rage and revolution.
**** The Stage: Elinor Cook’s play explodes into the intimate space of the Gate, defiling everyone and everything in its wake.Christopher Haydon’s visceral production grabs its audience by the throat and won’t let go. His superb cast tackles this highly emotive but potently theatrical material with total conviction. Fly Davis’ deceptively simple design frames the chaos in a utilitarian aesthetic that’s both fascistic and anarchic; neither the rulers nor the people are completely untarnished here.
