Rising playright Chris Lee. -- Kate Bassett Independent on Sunday 20120129 The piece has an inbuilt tension, and there are strong passages of writing. -- Lyn Gardner Guardian 20120131 Voicing the unspeakable and illuminating the inexplicable. Dawn's deeply distressing closing speech prises your mind's eye open on a scene that must have been as hard for Lee to imagine as it is for us to forget. -- Bella Todd Time Out London 20120202 Lee's play, it's accomplished. It's authentic. It's a gritty gift to actors. He's evidently talented. -- Dominic Cavendish Daily Telegraph 20120201
