Press Quotes

'achingly funny... witty, brave and galling writing... a harshly realistic, intelligent discussion of the complexities of love'

Time Out

'the real thing: sexy, savage and as lively as a cat on a hot tin roof... this is new writing as it should be'

The Stage

''truly astounding… frank, edgy dialogue and biting wit… hypnotic to watch'

Telegraph

'incredibly, lawlessly funny… deeply and seriously engaged with femininity and feminism in the contemporary world… in its willingness to say the unsayable it brings theatre one step closer to life…. makes an awful lot of other plays look pallid, mealy-mouthed and, frankly, just a bit boring'

Exeunt Magazine

'a finely wrought study of toxic relationships… spiky and unsettling'

Evening Standard

'searingly accurate… fierce, funny and well-observed… a short, sharp glimpse into the addictive grip of toxic relationships'

Metro

'punchy, shocking… it's the bravery in Jones' writing [that] makes this piece so exciting'
