'If you’re looking for a near-perfect play off the West End, here it is... I’d see it again tomorrow'
'One of the funniest and freshest plays you’ll see all year, led by a feisty cast with perfect comedic timing. Alex Ferns, in particular, is a riot.'
'Original, gutsy and hysterically funny, Joe Hampson's Rabbits lifts the lid on a normal couple's relationship to reveal how quirky life can be.'
