The Reviews Hub ***** (5 STARS)
It’s clear from the opening moments that this is a work of quality, both in terms of writing and acting.
British Theatre Guide ***** (5 STARS)
This is a remarkable and entertaining show that you don’t even have to be interested in football to enjoy
One4 review ***** (5 STARS)
You don’t have to like football to appreciate this play as the social history of the period is fascinating and the inequality felt at home is equally reflected on the pitch.
Edinburgh Guide ***** (5 STARS)
The Giant Killers has a fantastic script with tremendous all round performances from the entire troupe. It is high quality theatret worthy of a Hampden roar!
The List **** (4 STARS)
Each of the four cast members create the sense of a small group fighting hard for something larger than themselves. The Giant Killers proves that, if told with a deftness of touch, there is still mileage in a tear-jerking underdog story.
Three weeks **** (4 STARS)
I am not a fan of football, but for 75 minutes I was part of the crowd, feeling every triumph and tragedy with a true fan’s intensity
