“Grandage’s discovery of a sub-textual emotional truth is confirmed by Penelope Wilton’s equally mesmerising performance as Miss Madrigal. First seen silently sitting in a darkened conservatory, Wilton presents us with a woman wreathed in loneliness who has acquired an inner strength through her survival of an unjust murder-charge.” - Michael Billington, The Guardian
