2012David Ellis, who was so impressive in The American Clock, is very good as the disgruntled office boy Lawrence.

2012A minimalist approach to set and costume allows this cast to shine, with David Ellis' powers of metamorphosis particularly impressive

2012There are some fine performances - particularly from David Ellis, who injects some much-needed humour.
