„At the same time Nunn extracts mordant laughter from a scene, perfectly played by Benedict Cumberbatch and Claudie Blakley, in which a dying young sculptor vainly seeks to persuade Bolette to find fulfilment by sacrificing herself to his art.“ – The Guardian
„A beautiful beguiling production!“ – London Theatre Guide
