Review quote

An embattled contemporary morality play full of sardonic fun and spiky indignation...What an enviable debut: funny, intelligent and briskly honest. "Sunday Times on Slag" The writing is bright with aggression...a flintily intelligent play. "The Times on Teeth 'n' Smiles" I beg all lovers of the theatre, and all those concerned for its future, to see "Knuckle." "Sunday Telegraph on Knuckle" 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 on Licking Hitler" Brilliant...it deepens with every viewing. "Mel Gussow, New York Times on Plenty""show more
