While Captain Murderer in 2014 was "the most entertaining horror to hit the stage for some time … with excellent acting, sound and lighting placed for the ultimate build in tension, great timing and a tale so macabre that one may find oneself glancing repeatedly over one's shoulder … delightfully despicable and fantastic fun" remotegoat.co.uk
