“Parker took a risk when he peppered the text with references to real people. Helen Clark, Annette King, Michael Fay and Mike Moore are but a few of the off-stage presences haunting the action. But the risk pays off. The issues Parker explores are real ones; the events around which these issues cohere actually happened.”
– Elspeth Sandys, New Zealand Listener
