Format: Paperback
It's nice to have new dramas that focus on our time and our lives. This play is fresh and really brings the people of today into full dramatical characters. Have you ever felt like pushing grandmas when they slow down everyone on the tube? Have you ever been so excited that you can't speak properly anymore? Also, as for the writing, it is also really modern, and includes pages of words followig each other without making a sentence: a nice way to change chapters. I really recommend this for a break

A dreadful play. The female characters are nothing more than insipid cartoon cutouts of an idea of certain female 'types'. And badly written. Neither do the men don't fair well under Skinner's pen. I do not understand why this play would ever be produced. AWFUL.

A truly enjoyable read. I wanted it to go on longer... SPOILER ALERT: I was a bit put off by the stereotypical hysterical woman character but feel like that is redeemed in luscious and poetic the glimpses of human psyche and experience the reader is given with Skinner's poignant lists. However, the weird and sudden oedipal reference was unearned but at least an amazing visual... I'll just leave that there.
