"McKellen excels as an Orwellian state torturer" —Paul Taylor, The Independent
"Nobody can be inwardly and outwardly ravaged like Sir Ian"
"A masterly performance by Ian McKellen" — Michael Billington, The Guardian
"McKellen is often riveting as the troubled Government operative, switching from urbanity to anger, and from the mundane to the lachrymose, in the blink of an eye."
"McKellen spends 99% of the play’s 90 minutes on stage, expressing Paul’s inward and outward turmoil, and proving why he is so highly regarded as a stage performer."
"Ian McKellen cuts a watchably creepy figure . . . makes the flesh crawl"
