Reviews

It is in fact startlingly funny, peppered with one-liners and jokes... -- What's On Stage
In the last five years James Graham has established himself as British playwriting's prolific new wunderkind, and here he once again probes the thorny relationships that are the essence of political life. **** -- The Evening Standard
...diligently researched and informative...in its brightest moments this nearly three-hour show is an inventive hybrid of Much Ado About Nothing, Yes Minister and Stephen Sondheim's Merrily We Roll Along. -- The Evening Standard
...unexpectedly proven to be box office gold. -- Time Out
At the age of 35, James Graham is currently Britain's busiest playwright. With his new play Labour of Love, he continues to stake his claim to be one of its very best. -- What's On Stage
And what makes this such a good and gripping piece of theatre is that it doesn't preach us sermons about press ethics but leaves us to draw our own conclusions ...It strikes me as a first-rate play...**** * Ink review, Guardian *
Graham is so good at this kind of thing, mining recent political and social history to create compelling theatre...**** * Ink review, The Stage *
What's striking is just how coherent this up-to-the-minute response is. **** -- The Telegraph
