Review quote

"Slag""An embattled contemporary morality play full of sardonic fun and spiky indignation...What an enviable debut: funny, intelligent and briskly honest."--"Sunday Times" "Teeth 'n' Smiles ""The writing is bright with aggression...a flintily intelligent play."--"The Times" "Knuckle""I beg all lovers of the theatre, and all those concerned for its future, to see "Knuckle.""--"Sunday Telegraph" "Licking Hitler""Beginning with a middle-class young woman's unceremonious introduction to specialized war work, it develops with a devastating economy of means into a dramatization of the unarguable logic of deception...elegant, spare and as lucid as crystal."--"Observer" "Plenty""Brilliant...it deepens with every viewing."--Mel Gussow, "New York Times"
