Review:

David Greig's superb new play... Witty without being flip, wise without being sententious, provocative without being callous, it's probably the finest, most important thing Greig has written. Daily Telegraph This is a mighty play about not just one lost soul, but many. It is about grief, anger and revenge, but also about the things that bind us together as a community, the things that drive us apart, and what it is that makes us human... a play that dares to stare into the darkness within us all and search for a pinprick of light. Guardian
