Today the Council is coming to clear Magda’s house. She must find a way to deal with the constant shifting of stuff in her house and her head, as she revisits the past and struggles with the present to find a way to face the future.

The critical consensus

Stuff emerges as a lovely and likeable show, although a shade tantalising, in its failure to pursue some of the haunting issues it raises.

A missed opportunity to delve deeper into the psyche of hoarders.

There is an emotional core here that is well expressed and intriguingly explored, but it feels like the play’s brevity may be its weakness.

Despite such care and attention to details like this, at the moment it feels like Magda’s transformation happens so rapidly that Dow’s play is more of a well-drawn sketch of a show in need of going much deeper below the surface.
