Product Description

Review

The second play, they say, is the hardest. But Anya Reiss more than fulfils the promise she showed last year, as an 18-year-old, with Spur of the Moment… Like its predecessor, Reiss's play proves she knows a thing or two about the pervasive effect of parental discord on the young. 3 stars --The Guardian

it has wit and heart, and much of the dialogue is disconcertingly authentic… Adept at capturing the cadences of post-adolescent chatter, Reiss also knows how to probe the most raw emotions. 4 stars --The Evening Standard

Like Reiss debut, The Acid Test is full of humour, acute observation and accurate perception. The dialogue is as powerful and sharp as a vodka cocktail, and the tensions between generations are excruciatingly convincing... entertaining and occasionally moving. --The Stage

Accurate portrayal of today's youth. Does not go quite as far in the direction of kiddie porn as Spur of the Moment. Summing up, so what?
