Press Quotes

'Poetry laced with shards of broken glass... short, sharp and pungent theatre'

'Packs more into its single intense act than most plays twice its duration manage... shocking emotional violence... a riveting examination of the queasy relationship between two parts of our economically divided world. A small wonder'
