“Geoffrey Beevers’ production of little-known play about the moral fissures within an upper middle-class family is a razor-sharp take on a quietly subversive work…very well cast” Michael Billington, The Guardian

 

“Attractively acted and intimately staged by Geoffrey Beevers” Paul Taylor, The Independent

 

“Unearthed treasure…traces a clear line through this tangle of ideology, pragmatism and petulance” Fiona Mountford, Evening Standard

 

“The intimate space of the Finborough and the intricate set design by Alex Marker guarantee that we follow every twist in the March family’s dilemma…Being so close to the audience does not intimidate the actors, all of whom are excellent” Richard Maguire, The Reviews Hub

 

“Windows is a fascinating, sweet-natured and yet socially-aware play. It flows smoothly between its three scenes…with enough soft humour that a smile is never far away…It’s a genuine delight to see a play of this era which has strong female characters…The play is superbly directed…a fascinating piece of work, and a worthy revival” Rob Warren, Everything Theatre

 

“An excellent cast under Geoffrey Beevers’s direction convincingly play under our very noses” Vera Liber, British Theatre Guide

 

“A daring choice to revive…a welcome revival” William Russell, Reviewsgate

 

“Geoffrey Beevers' stylishly fluent revival brings John Galsworthy's still provocative play out of the shadows of theatrical history to spark debate and be enjoyed in equal measure…Playing in a relatively tight space presents no problems whatsoever for an effortlessly capable ensemble who provide a flawless and absorbing two hours of stimulating theatre” Peter Brown, Act Drop

 

“I am not saying that the play doesn’t deserve a run in a bigger theatre (because it does), but the intimate staging at the Finborough was perfect for seeing the play for the first time…Talking of the cast, they were all excellent” London Olios

“Eminently worth reviving….Victorian class-clash comedy with pin-sharp performances.” Michael Billington, The Guardian

 

“Having resurrected Ours in 2007, the Finborough Theatre now stages a rare revival of his masterpiece Caste – a comedy-drama about social class where the humour still sparkles 150 years after its premiere in Charlotte Peters’ entertaining production.” Neil Dowden, The Stage

 

“A production that retains its satirical bite and dark edge…a deft seven-strong ensemble” Donald Hutera, The Times

 

“An exquisite little shimmering gem to delight the discerning playgoer.” Peter Yates, Londontheatre1

 

“They have, without a doubt, ‘a hit. A palpable hit’, on their hands.” Richard Braine, London Pub Theatres

 

“Hilarious by any standards, ancient or modern, suggesting that maybe even Queen Victoria herself would have cracked a smile.” Stephen Bates, The Reviews Hub

 

“A very enjoyable hour and forty five minutes which never descends, as it so easily could in less skilful hands, into parody.” Alice Josephs, Traffic Light Theatre Goer

 

“Caste deserves a much longer run than its brief season at the Finborough.” Robert Tanitch, Mature Times

 

 “If Caste doesn’t get a transfer there really is no justice in the Theatrical firmament.” Richard Braine, London Pub Theatres
