Catherine Love for Whatsonstage: "Director Vanda Butkovic tackles Meredith Oakes' wordy English translation with a playful, darkly funny approach... Just a Must's commitment to introducing European theatre in translation to British audiences is both exciting and necessary... To see this work getting a rare – and intelligent – airing on the fringe is thrilling in itself."
Stuart Black for Londonist: "it's an impressive production with a committed cast and brisk direction by Vanda Butkovic who does well to keep the considerable verbiage flowing fast."
Just a Must is returning to Camden People's Theatre this May with our new production - the English language premiere of Dead at Last, No More Air by award-winning Austrian writer Werner Schwab. The production will be running 6 - 17 May 2014 and you can book tickets here.
