I saw this when it was first on 10 years ago and I thought it was terrific. It's so funny. Especially the line `I wouldn't say I was an ex-drunkard, but I like a drink.'

I felt that I could identify with a lot of the situations he was in, and I recognised many of his traits from people I know.

DEREK BARNES

CASTING DIRECTOR, 31

I think Peter O'Toole's performance is tremendous. It seems to have grown since the last production 10 years ago. I love the play. Very funny.

MARCUS BURROWS

PERFORMANCE ARTIST AND CARE WORKER, 32

It was an intense performance, with every nuance hit. The walk, the rhythm, the intonation of his delivery were pinpoint accurate.
