'A radio play with great credentials. Written and directed by Mike Hodges, who took the same credits on the brilliant 1971 crime thriller Get Carter. This is Hodges's re-working of King Lear. An extremely well-told story of retribution - but not one for the faint-hearted'. Radio Times 'A filthy, gritty and disturbing piece of work; a modern day Brighton Rock’. The Guardian Daily Mail
