A beautiful meditation on dependence and redemption.-- The Stage
Superb, vivid and violent... I've rarely seen such a brilliantly fused improvisation on Harold Pinter and David Mamet at once. Five Stars. --whatsonstage.com
Both monstrous and wonderful... demonstrates a tremendous lightness of touch, deftly sketching in the broader social context as well as the beautifully improbable details of his characters' existences. --Metro
McPherson is back to his best... The Night Alive is really a celebration of ordinary people looking out for each other. Maybe that is a kind of magic - but it takes a special kind of play to make us realise that's so. --Time Out
Mordantly funny, occasionally horrifying, strangely tender...defined by sharp knowing dialogue... a compelling tale of people struggling to connect with their incoherent lives. --The Times
