Special notes "Miss Mannheim gives her best performance as yet at the Arts, strong but restrained, and Mr. Goring puts a razor-edge on Maurice's [= his character's] nerves. Watching their quick manoeuvres I got mentally the same ache of concentration that one gets when watching two expert players of table-tennis, but that is a further tribute to the intelligence of Miss Mannheim's production." (Eric Keown, Punch)
