“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
