This microcosm of society at large is a brilliant and fascinating portrait of class as it exists at every level, even the relatively invisible.”
Curled up with a Good Book

A big existential present lovingly packaged in grease and suds An anti-holiday antidote for those who take their humour black.”

A brilliant extended metaphor for the way our society works. The dialogue is by turns quizzical, snide, sarcastic, defiant and servilely accommodating.”
