"The Philanthropist"
"A wonderful evening, intellectually stimulating, touchingly sympathetic and gloriously, gloriously funny."--"Sunday Times"
"Total Eclipse"
"A fine play...A deeply affecting work, simply and directly expressed in a language which does not need to strive to achieve its poetic effects."--"Sunday Times"
"A play that delicately, and with cumulative power, transcribes Mr Hampton's sorrow and indignation at the gradual extinction of the Brazilian Indians, and his reluctant but inexorable disillusionment with freedom fighters and liberal champions of good causes."--"Sunday Times"
"Mr Hampton writes with wit, elegance and a strong sense of character...Thoughtful, thought-provoking and funny."--"Times Educational Supplement"
