A phenomenally well-written first play
An exciting initiative showcasing new work by womxn
Did I say sucker-punch? It’s what the Orange Tree do every time.
Funny, sassy, disturbing, necessary.
Thoroughly absorbing, full of walking shadows who throw vivid questions.
In several ways, this is about as good as it gets.
You must see this.
We’re unlikely to see a better production of this still rarely-performed disturber of ourselves.
Devastating drama about the DNA of bigotry; and it all starts in surreal farce.

Riveting must-see revival of Mamet's breakthrough play
A masterfully conceived vehicle to stalk politics now
An exemplary, scrupulous production so starkly contemporary, it makes Hunger contemporary forever
I’ve not seen a festival of short plays to compare with these.
Visceral and sometimes very very funny. Then not. Essential viewing.
Yet again NVT deliver small gems of Americana. See it.
Maud Dromgoole’s proved more than adroit, skilful, and deliciously risk-taking. A must-see.
What we have is absorbing
It’s unlikely we’ll get a cleaner version, or a more absorbing production any time soon
Absorbing and horribly timely.
Elinor Cook’s always worth a diversion for. This drama deserves friends and revivals.
A savage anointing, a revelatory reading.
Rodrigues is a dramatist we need to see far more of.
We’re offered ‘salt to heal, salt to remember… above all for your wounds.’ Take it.

Speaks with a fierce innocence
If you’ve an appetite for exceptional new writing, just see it.
A searing new talent.
It really is purrfect for summer
Baker pushes dangerously at just what theatre is.
In nearly every way an outstanding pair of productions.
A play you want to return to.
Florian Zeller's masterpiece, in a production and central performance that would do it justice anywhere.
A deeply satisfying play
A brave and beautiful play
A necessary production you’re unlikely ever to see anywhere else.
13.10 is a good lunchtime to watch a Mam’s legend in.
An explosively powerful play
An assured showcase of shorts
The most consistently satisfying work of Tim Crouch I’ve seen.
This cast’s exemplary dedication deserves watching for their sheer performative belief.
The finest new play from the Court this year, gleaming and deadly
Compelling and bleakly miraculous
A mostly terrific revival.
