    What the popular press said...

    "Never fulfills even its modest promise."
    Ben Brantley for New York Times

    "It’s clean, clear and competent at every corner."
    Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

    "Anglophiles with a fetish for bookish Cambridge students politely arguing about literature and life may get a kick out of 'The Common Pursuit.'"
    Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

    "The late Simon Grey was such a strong playwright that not even sitcom-level acting and directing can damage his skillfully structured scripts."
    David Sheward for Back Stage

    "Might not be a great play, but it's a great theatrical experience: a succulent evening, in which you can completely lose yourself in what's happening onstage, confident the playwright, director and actors won't let you down."
    Robert Feldberg for The Record
