    4.5 I have enjoyed reading Raine's earlier plays, but this is a gigantic step forward... parts of it are sheer brilliance, and Raine's dialogue often crackles. My qualms keeping it from a full 5 stars come in that, at times, the characters are almost TOO erudite - even barristers don't speak so eloquently ALL the time. Also, although everything eventually fits together, the main thrust of the play (marital rape) doesn't come into focus until very late in the second act - there is nothing superfluous beforehand, it just seems like the structure is a bit off.

    An amazing script to what I'm sure is a spectacular - and important - play. I hope someone brings this out as a local production sometime; Nina Raine - a great writer - here has created a masterpiece, her best play to date, a modern classic, or at the least something very, very important. A powerful piece of writing - very dark and funny in places too.

    On first speed read, tricky devil of a play shifting roles/partners/stagings to blur the lines between truths. Idk if it feels fully human at times, but truth or dare, and the ending, certainly sear.

    An outstanding drama, placed uncomfortably close to reality.

    This is a properly brilliant play. I wrote about it here: http://wp.me/p8ddPP-5I
