About the Book

Cardiff East
'As scene melts into scene, one’s appetite for knowing more and more about these people is constantly whetted, even for the ones one would avoid in real life. Each and every [character] rings true and resonates further. . . A play which is never less than gripping.'
Mail on Sunday

Certain Young Men
'The play is marked by a fast turnover of scenes, lots of brusque, vivid, wryly funny dialogue . . . articulate, arresting and as freshly performed as anything in town.'
The Times

The York Realist: Winner of the London Critics' Circle Award for Best New Play
'As a love story, The York Realist is riveting and heart-rending, performed with fine-tuned naturalism that's quiet and unhurried. Gill is always terrifically perceptive about male tenderness. Overall, the personal and political are subtly united in a study of English masculinity, class and culture. Such outstanding work.'
Independent on Sunday

Original Sin
'Hauntingly powerful.'
Guardian
