**** Four Stars, The Stage 'Caitlin McLeod's production, on Cecilia Carey's versatile set (which suggests that there is not much difference between imprisonment and freedom for these women), is calm, deep and dignified'.
**** Four Stars, WhatsOnStage 'Cecilia Carey's ingenious design, along with Elliot Griggs's flawless lighting, sees the Finborough's intimate playing space transformed from squalid hovel to bare prison cell and back again with just a couple of prop changes. In a very effective piece of staging, Carey has Young Dee and Young Jamie always in sight, even while the focus of the action is their older selves - we may change and grow as time passes, but we can never fully leave behind the people we once were'.
