Reviews of the original production (1993/1995)

“Full of muscle and feeling. Highly recommended.” Sunday Times
“The characters crackle with life. Exhilarating in its apparent spontaneity.”The Times
“Very sharply written, bristles with one-liners.” The Independent
“Awakens nostalgia as well as indignation; though nothing in my memory can match Lewis’ jokes.” Independent on Sunday
“The sheer snap and crackle of the writing – crude, rude, funny and vibrant – lifts this well above the usual bedpan drama.” The Guardian
“Lewis’ remarkable achievement… he has written some of the funniest dialogue presently to be heard on the West End stage.” Sunday Express
“There is no mistaking the production’s raw power, its humour and its bracing pity. Army recruitment officers will loathe Our Boys. Almost everyone else is likely to be bowled over.” Daily Telegraph
“Lewis draws all his characters with sharply defined and often killingly funny insights. As heartbreaking as it is hilarious and I cannot recommend it too strongly.” Daily Mail
“A darkly gripping thriller. Dirty, funny and heartbreakingly realistic.” Mail On Sunday
“Thoroughly genuine and extremely funny.” Time Out

These are quotes from reviews of the original production of the play.

‘Enormously funny and at others equally heartrending.’**** London Theatre
