This was a stunning play. I left amazed at the actor-musician-athlete cast, and inspired and moved by the true story of these men. Definitely get a ticket if you can!

Wonderful! - A great way to finish off our trip to London! I wish we could do this every week but its a long way to travel from US :+)

if this is good then what is bad .....ok im not a regular theatre goer but was stuck for something to do so i paid my £75.00 for a pair of tickets and got a really good view of a very boring production it was well meaning but dull and reginal accents are rife so i couldnt follow all of it. it seemed like a classy school production although the actors were good it just looked amateur with lots of running about in a very small theatre i thought it seemed a lot to pay for this and would have rather seen the films next door that looked quite good!

Saw this play on Saturday and I can only agree with the other reviews. One of the best plays I have seen in a long time. All of the cast deserve a medal for the sheer stamina that this play needs to carry it off. It is very moving and brought me to tears at the end. long may it run. Pite the theatre was only 2/3's full as it deserves a full house at all performances!

I saw this play at the Hampstead Theatre the last day before it transferred to the Gielgud, and it was totally inspiring! I thoroughly recommend it. The best play I've seen for years. Feel the breeze as they run by! The "They shall rise up on wings like eagles" bit really got me. If you want something to lift you up out of the current state of this country and the awful summer and inspire you to get in to your chariot and soar off in to the future, this is it!

Excellent play. Just saw it at the Hampstead Theatre and it will transfer well to a bigger venue. Enjoy!
