‘Making her theatre debut in this Arthur Miller double bill, which hints at reality behind a mask of illusion, Abi Titmuss proves she is not just a celebrity and magazine cover-girl but an actress of genuine promise. Playing two very different roles, she not only demonstrates her versatility but delivers her lines with attractive warmth and conviction, holding the stage even in moments of repose’. John Thacker, The Stage, 6th March 2006.
