Samuel Adamson

Henry watches. He watches Anne who is helped or hindered by the older man in her life, the enigmatic Alec as she tries to make it as an actor. And he watches Trevor, who hangs out in seedy clubs and his flat in Paddington, as he tries to make it as a poet

As the lives of all three interlock, they drift into a world of sexual and emotional confusion

"This is another of those astonishingly confident first plays that the Bush has been discovering for years. The writing is crisp, cutting and elegant" ~ John Peter, Sunday Times

"The display of twentysomething petulance that opens Samuel Adamson's first play is breathtaking in its well-observed shallowness Adamson achieves that rare thing a study in superficiality, crassness, and emotional blockage that is profound, subtle, and full of insight about human nature.... Adamson's play sparkles with surface hilarity..." ~ Clare Bayley, New Statesman and Society

"....a brightly flared firework which announces Adamson's precocious talent with a bang" ~ Nick Curtis, Evening Standard
