iHo: ★★★★ FROM MAIL ON SUNDAY

'Tony Kushner’s latest play is what it says on the tin – and more. George Bernard Shaw’s The Intelligent Woman’s Guide To Socialism And Capitalismgets a reference in the title and GBS gets a name check in the first scene, too. The play is certainly Shavian in its ferocious intelligence, if not in its content, as a gay guy works out who he wants most, his expensive rent-boy lover or his theologian husband.'

'But this big, bracing piece – from the author of the epic Angels In America, to be revived by the National next year – has more in common with the meaty dissections of dysfunctional families in the work of Arthur Miller, as decades of secrets and lies are exposed.'

'Tamsin Greig is outstanding as Empty (real name Maria Theresa), divorced but still sleeping with her ex and now married to Maeve, a doctor of theology who is expecting their child, fathered by Empty’s brother. Here, relationships are necessarily complicated.'

'In every sense, this is a heady brew, which director Michael Boyd and a fine cast deliver with gusto.'
