“Robert Bolt has written a play that is luminous with intelligence and steely with conviction….With its commingling of literary grace, intellectual subtlety and human simplicity, it challenges the mind and, in the end, touches the heart.” (New York Times) “a big thoughtful play” (Washington Post) “What Mr Bolt has done is to make the human mind shine. The glare is dazzling; the experience exhilarating.” (Walter Kerr)
