Presse : THE TIMES headlines, “An Edward Albee double bill on marriages in trouble leaves our reviewer unimpressed”. BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE , the Times reviewer says of Marriage Play, “Gish and Paterson are highly watchable performers, and as meticulous as the script allows, but they cannot disguise the fact that they are playing exemplars rather than people.” CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, “Although both works are intriguing, they cannot stand comparison with his greatest plays.” He goes on to say, ’Marriage Play is “a second-rate play”. And goes on to say, “You leave this double-bill feeling that you have had a couple of tasty starters but missed out on the main course.” MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN on 'Finding the Sun', “Neither Anthony Page's atmospheric production….nor the performances of Pauline Lynch and Polly Walker .. can disguise the play's wistful wispiness. Marriage Play deserves a better partner.” PAUL TAYLOR for THE INDEPENDENT says, “Both plays sound as though they were written for a commission rather than to obey some fierce creative imperative.” NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, “Magnificently disturbing double-bill.” PETER HEPPLE for THE STAGE says of ‘Finding the Sun’ says, “Too elliptic to strike home.” BRIAN LOGAN for TIME OUT says, “ 'Marriage Play' fails interestingly, ‘Finding the Sun’ flops catastrophically”
