"Linck’s plight highlights our current political fight to legalise same sex marriages worldwide, and so bringing this true yet relatively ancient story to our attention is both a brave and intelligent choice for the writers...A thoroughly enjoyable piece; thought provoking and important" - Female Arts                                                                              

"The play grapples with women’s rights, gay rights and religious tolerance, all of which are still contentious and challenging issues. Prosecuting women for wearing trousers now seems ridiculous; in future, prosecuting homosexuals will hopefully seem equally archaic. Linck takes on a challenging biography and weighty theme" - Whatspeenseen

"offers a powerful and thought-provoking examination of gender and sexuality issues" - Everything Theatre
