“The Tavistock Repertory Company, which gave PANTAGLEIZE its London premiere at the Canonbury Tower on March 23, certainly pulls out all the stops … The director, David Jones, has filled his stage with comic soldiers, frenetic revolutionaries, gibbering civilians, and punctuates the whole thing with frequent explosions. The sum total is amusing and entertaining, but M de Ghelderode’s ‘saddening’ aim has got lost somewhere along the way.” – The Stage, 29th March 1962 (page 13).
