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)

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