Jumpy

‘The funniest new play the West End has seen in ages. It’s not only funny, it’s painfully acute; and its wit is of a piece with its insight.’ – Daily Telegraph

The Village

‘A great piece of storytelling . . . flat-out wonderful.’ – The Times

A Laughing Matter

‘De Angelis’s writing is even funnier than it is stimulating. … Comedy needn’t be soft and comforting. It can be mischievous and subversive. You see the bind in which Garrick finds himself, trapped as he is by the economic, social and moral pressures. It’s a bind his descendants know even today. I haven’t seen it dramatised before with such infectious brio.’ – The Times

Rune

‘A gorgeous little nugget of a show in which a bored teenager on a school trip to see the hoard at the Potteries Museum suddenly discovers a power within her when she gets to hold a piece of it.’ – Guardian

Extinct

‘Builds its drama with its own gripping truth … Necessary and urgent.’ – Guardian

Gin Craze!

‘It’s terrifically vivid and exciting. … A Brechtian message delivered with the most glorious, full-throated ebullience: an intoxicating show that leaves your head spinning, your spirit soaring and a fire in your belly.’ – The Times
