from The Independent:
John Donnelly’s acerbically witty and horribly gripping new play tackles the topical subject of the homophobia that seems to be entrenched in the culture of football.
Seven years on, Jason is a married international celebrity, seeking to quash rumours about his orientation by engineering a honey-trap in a Spanish hotel room with a table dancer (Lisa McGrillis).
The price he pays for choosing superstardom over human intimacy is beautifully charted in Tovey’s splendid performance – the cockiness increasingly desperate and hollow when he confronts, after twelve years, the friend he betrayed.
Nico Mirallegro is very funny as the gabby bell-hop in this chilling morality play about a man damned as both victim and devious exploiter of the secrecy culture.
