This is an intelligent, involving examination of the transformative potential of fatherhood - of its ability to take a man who can barely look at himself in the mirror, and make him feel all-powerful, worthy of love. For my money, it may well be the best one-man show you're likely to see at the Fringe this year. - Daily Telegraph on Captain Amazing
Sizzling exuberance and imagination - Observer, on Brilliant Adventures
Remarkable young writing talent . . . There is a convincing tang of lived experience in the evocation of a practically lawless pocket of the north-east. --Guardian, on Brilliant Adventures
Alistair McDowall's fascinating debut - which won a Judges Award in the Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting in 2011 - plays by its own rules . . . Note the name Alistair McDowall. He's a writer to watch. - The Times
An intense performance that is moving and funny in equal measure . . . What is presented on stage is a work of pure joy --Whatsonstage
We need playwrights like McDowall. He believes in potential, champions underdogs and writes with such full-blooded bighearted empathy that you can't help but be won over - Scotsman
A monologue that crackles with invention . . . This is a terrific piece of writing - full of crackle, invention and heart --Guardian
