  • So so!

    23 April 2018

    Seen 4 of James Graham's plays now. This one was disappointing. I wouldn't recommend it. Loved This House, Labour of love and Ink.

  • Incredibly engaging show

    22 April 2018

    I really enjoyed this play. It was incredibly engaging and thought provoking with some excellent performances. The audience participation was great fun without being contrived. I would definitely recommend it.

  • Funny reality drama..

    22 April 2018

    Well directed and acted performance of the reality show intertwined with courtroom drama and audience participation - all of which makes for a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

  • Could Have Been Great

    21 April 2018

    Quiz is specifically about possible cheating on a TV quiz program. But it is really a dramatized trial showing both prosecution and defense versions of the events. This had the potential to an amazing strong evening of theater. But it misses, unfortunately. The prosecution's case is stacked against the defendants. Facts are presented in a one sided fashion. At the conclusion of Act I, the audience votes overwhelmingly that the defendants are guilty. Act II is the defense presentation. The information is all there to see the substantial holes in the prosecutions case. But the Defense is presented so poorly, a subsequent audience vote still leaves the defendants voted guilty. A chart projected shows the audience voting results from the past week. All showed the audience voting guilty. If the defense had been better, it could have demonstrated the problems with a one sided heavy handed prosecution. The effect could affect future jury trials. But this has not happened here. I regret that they have failed in a very important opportunity.

  • a fun-filled anatomy of how hooked people can get on TV game-shows when the prize is right... even if you’re sitting up in the dress-circle you feel included, goaded, teased.'

    The Telegraph

  • With its mix of populism, personal tragedy, politics, and even a pub quiz, this is sure to be another hit for a playwright on a roll'

    The Independent

  • James Graham’s portrayal of the ‘coughing major’ scandal is a whirling, neon wonder that makes for utterly compulsive viewing'
