Editorial Reviews

Review

An embattled contemporary morality play full of sardonic fun and spiky indignation...What an enviable debut: funny, intelligent and briskly honest. (Sunday Times on Slag)

The writing is bright with aggression...a flintily intelligent play. (The Times on Teeth 'n' Smiles)

I beg all lovers of the theatre, and all those concerned for its future, to see Knuckle. (Sunday Telegraph on Knuckle)

Beginning with a middle-class young woman's unceremonious introduction to specialized war work, it develops with a devastating economy of means into a dramatization of the unarguable logic of deception...elegant, spare and as lucid as crystal. (Observer on Licking Hitler)

Brilliant...it deepens with every viewing. (Mel Gussow, New York Times on Plenty)

I loved acting one of his plays out in a mock theatrical casting interview. Such womanly defiant words of delivery.
