REVIEWS

"See this play. This production. Both are miraculous" ~ Timothy Ramsden, ReviewsGate

"A fine play about politicking US style written by an African-American whose work has not previously been seen in Europe" ~ Philip Fisher, British Theatre Guide

"Both political and intensely human ... The whole piece, so vividly played, might hopefully retain the American Dream. But it does so with a wide-awake sense of reality" ~ Reviews Gate

"A highly topical piece of theatre. As protest continues in Ferguson after the shooting of Michael Brown by a white police officer, it is ever more important that we push stark examinations of police relations with black communities into the popular sphere" ~ Hannah Blyth, Everything Theatre
