The Guardian: 4 stars ****
'Full of kaleidoscopic razzmatazz Daniel Evan's production matches exactly the play's restless vivacity, Robert Jones's design is cleverly built around a revolving, illuminated cube and most of the 12-strong cast play multiple roles.'
'James Graham explores the thin line between courtroom and showbix.'
Sunday Times: 4 stars ****
'Graham asks serious questions in the most inventive ways.'
Metro: 4 stars ****
'James Graham, possibly the finest playwright of his generation, takes opposing views surrounding the saga and turns it into a gripping cautionary tale. Ingeniously constructed. Daniel Evan's nimble production is brash, bold and thought-provoking.'
The Stage: 4 stars ****
' Graham and director Daniel Evans expertly ratchet up the tension - and the possible doubts advanced by the defence attorny Sofia Woodley QC (a persuasive and determined Sarah Woodward) - on a story whose outcome we already know. Designer Robert Jones' set consists of a rotating cube of strip lights for the main TV studio that also seamlessly doubles up as the courtroom.'

'The drama grips like Greek tragedy.'
