Women Laughing Reviews

'Wall's early death...has robbed the theatre of a unique and very powerful voice.' - Rick Jones, Evening Standard 'Powerfully charts the eruption of mental illness into ordinary lives.' - Daily Telegraph 'This tight, tense play is about disintegration, about the loss of confidence you never really had.' - Jack Tinker, Daily Mail 'Bold, brash and subtle - a hilarious and desperate script - will make you laugh and think about why you're laughing. Very much recommended*;.' - British Theatre Guide 'It is the mark of a really talented writer when a difficult subject such as mental illness can be made to be not just entertaining, but downright funny - this is a gem of a play.' - The Public Reviews
