Nick's Profile >

"Simon Donald's blissfully funny new play...at times, you get the impression that a gangster film like The Long Good Friday has been re-written by a Scottish Joe Orton, except that with Donald, compassion keeps leaking through the comic callousness."

Paul Taylor The Independent

Two and half hours whip by with nary a backwards glance. Don’t miss it.
