“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
