“The acting is superb, espeically Finbar Lynch as Lemml, th inoffensive, hero-worshipping stage manager.” - Clive Davis (The Times)

“Holding the troupe together is Lemml, played with quiet integrity by Finbar Lynch, his melancholy eyes capable of sparkling with joy. Lemml has been passionately committed to the play since its first reading and it is his vision which steers the play through the tricky years ahead.” - Jane Darcy (

“Finbar Lynch’s company manager Lemml, who spends his life shepherding and stewarding the text and a variety of productions across nations like some unofficial chaperone, blends timid gentleness and artistic defiance with heartbreaking effect.” - Alex Wood (
