Reviews

"Macmillan's play is at once harrowing and blisteringly funny, bleak and redemptive...It combines hyper-real dialogue with a quirky form that expands and contracts time before our eyes, creating the almost physical sensation of being hurtled towards an uncertain future. The piece's furious pace lives up to its title, leaving audience, and no doubt actors, feeling the need to pause for breath in a world that does not allow it."

* What's On Stage *

"Both uproariously funny ... and unbearably poignant... an engaging and poignant piece"

* Exeunt Magazine *
Duncan Macmillan's distinctive, off-kilter love story is brutally honest, funny, edgy and current. It gives voice to a generation for whom uncertainty is a way of life bravely written, startlingly structured" -- Lyn Gardner * Guardian *
