'Beautifully dark and recognisable... an insightful observation of how we dissect our relationships, how we talk about talking, and what 'silence' means between lovers'
'The most eloquent play about men and women I've seen for years… debbie tucker green's latest piece not only suggests a maturing talent, but also the depth that comes with experience'
'Oblique yet compassionate… debbie tucker green uses language as deftly as a composer might use notes'
'debbie tucker green's text is visceral. No one captures the pattern of fractured speech quite like her… a writer digging deeper than most to reach something profound about what it means to love one another'
