Reviews of previous work:

‘Deliciously brutal…Expertly structured, wonderfully bitter and explicit…Horribly excellent’
Terry Ramsey, Evening Standard
‘Rarely does writing and performance combine so eventfully. Rarely, too, is talent demonstrated in both areas…a tour de force in every sense.’
Nick Awde, The Stage
