About Book

'A cracking black comedy that has you laughing uproariously one moment and jumping with shock the next . . . For those with strong stomachs, Dinner offers a delicious feast of comedy and the macabre.' Daily Telegraph

Dying for It
'A subversive Russian classic: one that addresses the ultimate question of "why live?"' Guardian

'The play, freely adapted by Moira Buffini, presents a glorious gallery of comic types.' Independent

Welcome to Thebes
'It's thrilling. Moira Buffini's strange and daring play is moving, wise, funny, horrifying . . . Full of resonances you weren't expecting, jokes you didn't see coming . . . It raises huge questions with wit.' The Times

Winner of the 2014 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in an Affiliate Theatre

'A phenomenon.' Sunday Telegraph

'Perfectly pitched between the comic and the serious.' Guardian
