Presse : "The show works and, at its considerable best, works triumphantly. Just the sight of the crooked, dottily eccentric house occupied by the sweet and unsuspecting Mrs Wilberforce raises a smile." Charles Spencer for The Telegraph

"A very different animal from the 1955 movie; and, while it may lack the Ealing touch, it works very well as a slapstick farce.." Michael Billington for The Guardian

"Affectionate yet brightly original adaptation of a classic Ealing comedy dating from 1955." Henry Hitchings for The Evening Standard

"This inspired adaptation that converts the proceedings into a hilarious send-up of loony, slapstick farce." Paul Taylor for The Independent
