Andrea Dunbar wrote her semi-autobiographical play when she was just 19. It’s an explosive portrait of girls facing an unpromising future, offered a taste of adult adventure.


The critical consensus

One of the real virtues of this revival is that it does not go in for sermonising hindsight but lets this very good play speak for itself, Strongly recommended.

****(*)Paul Taylor, The Independent, 12/01/2018

This is a play, for all its rough edges, that absolutely must be seen.

****(*)Sarah Crompton, What's On Stage, 12/01/2018

Seeming less uproarious but more political and perceptive than when it first appeared in 1982, Andrea Dunbar’s portrait of Thatcher’s Britain still chills.

****(*)Michael Billington, The Guardian, 12/01/2018

After all the controversy surrounding this revival of Andrea Dunbar’s memorable play, it adds nothing that’s new.
