Nicole Ansari and Jayne Baron Sherman

"Layla runs the show at every turn. She dictates the tone, which judders from flippant to sexy to despairing to raging, as the two lovers woozily remember their past and flinch at their future. Ansari’s voice remains clear and strong throughout – always the teacher to her young student, despite the extraordinary circumstances."

THE GUARDIAN

"From the opening moments of this UK premiere — vigorously directed by the actor Brian Cox — we are confronted with a kind of horror."

SUNDAY TIMES

"Ansari is magnetic, expressing both Layla’s straight-backed pride and her obviously tortuous and tragic circumstances. Sina, too, is artful in his ebb and flow between passionate lover and whining weakling. The situation is so unthinkable, Sinners doesn’t seek to judge these characters, only to sympathise."
