— London Theatre 1

Let's Get Angry
"From time to time it’s something meaningful that grips the entire country. Something dramatic and dangerous. In 1970 it was a terrifying rise of unemployment, inflation and racism that led to violence reigning across football grounds. In 2011 it was the summer of riots in which man turned on man and an image of one boy’s rucksack rocketed across the internet."
— Le Cool Magazine
"Very thought provoking & funny. Confronting a current issue we have in Britain today. Definitely one to see!"
