This page includes quotes about the play House & Garden by people other than Alan Ayckbourn, predominantly drawn from books and articles about Alan Ayckbourn or British theatre; it does not include quotes from reviews, which can be found in the Reviews pages.

"There is also an insight into the way a different light may be cast on characters in a new environment, with the way people at the dramatic centre of their own lives are seen to be tangential to the lives of others. But the affirmation lies in the conjunction and contrast of behaviour indoors, where people are formal, even icy, always on the lookout for advantage, in short political, with the comparative innocence and openness and even abandon of outdoors."
(Paul Allen, National Theatre House & Garden programme, 2000)
