“Alex Waldmann is not only one of the best actors on The London stage but he must also be the cleanest.” - Michael Arditti (The Daily Express)

“As Avi, Alex Waldmann gives a compellingly nuanced performance, cringing every time he makes himself look uncool in front of his younger friend, his desperate desire to father a child adding an uncomfortably paternal edge to their interactions.” - David Fargnoli (The Stage)

“As Avi, Alex Waldmann expresses the internal conflict of a character who is clearly in love with his wife, but challenged by his unexpected feelings for Eitan. Waldmann is very adept at identifying with Eitan’s teenage desires and lack of control of his body and mind, while trying to confirm his own place in the world.” - Aliya al-Hassan (

“Waldmann is hugely sympathetic as the restrained yet conflicted Avi, here to cleanse himself, yet unable to be entirely honest with himself.” - Dominic Maxwell (The Times)

“Waldmann, meanwhile, expertly suggests a man struggling to stay in control, his tight body language revealing the warring feelings within him. At one point, standing completely still, back to the audience, he manages to convey the conflicting waves of desire and fear rolling through him.” - Sarah Hemming (Financial Times)


“Ben Kidd’s confident, playful production and terrific performances from the reliably good Alex Waldmann.” - Fiona Mountford (The Evening Standard)

“Alex Waldmann displays something more openly conflicted as he tries to get to grips with their shared experience.” - Georgia Snow (The Stage)

“Alex Waldmann and Adelle Leonce also play the young couple with a commendably uninhibited mix of ferocity and tenderness and show how a child can both divide and unite troubled parents.” - Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“And Adelle Leonce and Alex Waldmann are very touching as the couple: precise, funny, frazzled, they seem to tire and age in front of you.” - Sarah Hemming (Finanical Times)
