'A wonderfully witty, provocative piece of theatre.' Guardian

'Harrison has created a glorious piece of total theatre.' Time Out

'Square Rounds is clearly a work of genius . . . It's so brilliant you leave the theatre in a kind of exhilarated pessimism.' Boston Globe

'It would be a stony soul who didn't salute Harrison's reckless theatrical audacity . . . A stunningly original piece of theatre.' Guardian

'Let's hand it to Tony Harrison: when it comes to taking theatrical risks, he has no rival.' The Times
