Francis plays Rice with chilling, unrelenting callousness. Yet it is testament to Hansberry’s skill and Francis’s performance that he is still recognisably and believably human.
Tim Bano, The Stage
Clive Francis is wonderfully dyspeptic as the British major who came here to make this country into something; it's not an outpost of empire, but his home…then he shoots someone.
Michael Coveney, What’s on Stage
Major Rice is played with snarling precision by Clive Francis.
