"An impressive cast...You cannot fail to enjoy this show." Sydney Scoop
"Delicious characters to savour." David Spicer, Stage Whispers
“A cleverly constructed, well-observed and unforgivingly comical portrait of unrepentant 1st Worlders...The Chaser’s Chris Taylor is a convincing stage presence...Williamson’s 50th is remarkable for the technical skills and sheer entertainment on display.” Diana Simmonds, Stagenoise
"Clever-funny lines, in a comedy of relationships inspired by human weaknesses...This is true farce and the audience are falling off their seats with laughter." Susanne Gervay
"Williamson’s latest work is a hoot that’s not be missed." City Hub
"If you ask theatre-goers to name Australia's greatest-ever playwright, the unanimous answer will be "David Williamson." Jack of Hearts...clearly shows that the master has lost none of his drive, enthusiasm, skill and humour. Attend this production, you'll have a great time and you'll laugh out loud." Sydney Chic
