Evening Standard Review

Henry Hitchings of the Evening Standard gives the Bennett double bill four stars. Another good review for Alex:

"The material will be known to Bennett fans. It’s the presentation that feels fresh, and it is a tribute to the skill of Alex Jennings, who appears as the author in both pieces, that one often forgets it isn’t Bennett himself dispensing ironies from the stage.

Jennings has caught the particularity of Bennett’s delivery: the flatness and Eeyorish detachment, with its little flashes of wit. He even manages to look like him, evoking his misleadingly avuncular bearing and wry watchfulness."

Full review at the Evening Standard.
