"I thought this story was genuinely funny – in a way that induced large, stomach-heaving honks of laughter – but beneath the humour there was a freight of real sadness, or even darkness, and it was this that elevated the work above its own constraints."
KEVIN BARRY on R V Sieger - additional documents disclosed by the Crown Prosecution Service
"You think no one can ever do this subject justice; no one can ever give it the gravity it deserves.  Ten minutes into the play I am ashamed of my cynicism."
