Rezensionen
This play is undaunted by [Wittgenstein's] famously incomprehensible ideas . . . [It] grabs philosophical enquiry by the shoulders and gives it a good shake . . . Wittgenstein is not afraid to air philosophical ideas. Did we understand them all? No. Will you understand them? Probably not. Does that matter? Not a bit. In fact that's the whole point. Londonist
