Editorial Reviews

'a towering achievement... a modern classic' - Evening Standard; 'an astonishing dramatic achievement... Munro's script is the star... a feast of theatrical might and blistering emotion' - Telegraph; 'full of topical resonance... These are unequivocally plays for today... Munro skilfully interweaves the personal and the political' - Guardian; 'wit, punch and accessibility... this is theatre that mixes the personal with the political to fabulous effect. ...
