Reviews

Duncan Macmillan's cracking play is a timely and gripping dissection of parenting and responsibility... This is a play that tests your liberal instincts to the limits. * The Guardian, on Monster *
An honest, original and pretty much irresistible tearjerker. * The New York Times ArtsBeat, on People, Places and Things *
A woundingly intense two-hander. It is the most beautiful, quietly shattering play of the year. * The Express, on Lungs *
If we look to theatre to increase our awareness of the human condition, the evening succeeds on all counts. [...] This talk, which deserves wide dissemination, is better than good: it is necessary. * The Guardian, on 2071 *
Heart-wrenching, hilarious... one of the funniest plays you'll ever see about depression - and possibly one of the funniest plays you'll ever see, full stop. * The Guardian, on Every Brilliant Thing *
The writing is exquisitely painful. At times it feels like Macmillan has taken one of those little spoons, the ones with the serrated edge, for grapefruit, and scooped something out of you. * The Stage, on People, Places and Things *
It is a rigorous but impassioned cri de coeur [...] conveyed in a single voice, founded on a lifetime's experience of the workings of the planet, it has real power. * New Scientist, on 2071 *
