"[In] Anthony Shaffer's compelling play ... there are several coups de théâtre of a brilliance expected from the author of Sleuth..." ~ Mark Sanderson, Time Out

"It is Shaffer's special gift that he can lead an audience up a dramatic cul-de-sac, and then surprise them by finding an ingenious exit no-one could suspect was there... he succeeds in gripping our attention with vice-like efficiency" ~ Milton Shulman, London Evening Standard

"This Savage Parade explores the oft-made claim that the state of Israel is in danger of becoming as fascist in its way as the Third Reich..." ~ Paul Taylor, Independent

"[Shaffer] has used the genre of the mystery thriller to present intelligent and serious argument about such vast concepts as justice, morality and faith ... This thoughtful and at times exciting play deserves to attract a wide audience" ~ Charles Osborne, Daily Telegraph
