Presse : IAN JOHNS for THE TIMES says, “Much of Marber’s peppy writing…ensure that the play is never dull, and some moments…. have a real emotional edge…..But the play, diverting as it is, remains as dissatisfying as its ending…” CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says Howard Katz is “marvellously played by the great and undervalued Ron Cook”. He goes on to say, “ Though individual scenes are often sharply written and blackly comic, none of the supporting cast are given enough time to develop fully rounded characters.” PAUL TAYLOR for THE INDEPENDENT says Howard Katz is “played with an engaging, driven energy and end-of-the-tether recklessness by the wonderful Ron Cook”. He goes on to say, “It's good to report that Marber's new fervent pro-life stance hasn't robbed his writing of its bite.” MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, “The play is never dull, but leaves one feeling that Marber follows too many paths on the way to Howard's end.” NICHOLAS DE JONGH describes it as “a superficial wallow in the miseries of Howard Katz” and goes on to say, “Howard Katz is all heat and little light.” SHERIDAN MORLEY for TELETEXT describes it as "an uneven production". JOHN PETER for THE SUNDAY TIMES describes the play as a "haunting, aching, wounding play.." and says, "Patrick Marber skilfully recaptures the essence of one man's cosmic struggle."
