"The very act of casting Candy Bowers, a woman of South African descent, as a white man from a colonising force, is politically powerful and intriguing. And she’s absolutely brilliant in as Penworth, with an impossibly plummy accent and manner belying a dangerous brutality." 5 STARS Ben Neutze The Daily Review

"Penworth is an adorably dim yet passionate doctor and Bowers' transitions in and out of the drama and the comedy is seamless. Her subtle and effortless comedy is a joy to watch." 4.5 STARS Victoria Beal BWW

"With only three on stage, Bowers, at first, steals the show. Her character, Dr Penworth, the charming yet clueless genius, is generously given all the one-liners..."4.5 STARS Anthony Rebelo Artshub
