Neighbourhood Watch: Quotes by Other People

"Neighbourhood Watch is a mercilessly funny exposé of all the Cameronian babble about the need for a vigorous communal response to our supposedly "broken society". It shows what can happen when law and order is left to a group of volunteer vigilantes - a crusading local regime, based on unflinching public morality and much lauded by the Daily Mail, turns increasingly malign and violent. As so often Ayckbourn seems to be following the example set by Ibsen in The Wild Duck and warning us that when well-meaning idealists come knocking at the door, it is best not to answer."
(Michael Billington, The Guardian, 25 May 2012)
