Press Quotes

'David Haig is a man of many talents. An award-winning actor (brilliantly funny in Four Weddings and a Funeral), he is also a playwright and, for a while, worked as a Samaritan. His thought-provoking new play is loosely based on his experiences... This is a fascinating, involving evening, and further proof of the blossoming promise of David Haig the playwright'
