Softcops renders the philosophy of Foucault as a music-hall turn and Victorian freakshow ‘theatre and history combine to give such intelligent fun’ (TLS); Top Girls brings five great and less-than-great women from history together for a dinner party and ‘has a combination of directness and complexity which keeps you both emotionally and intellectually alert’ (Sunday Times); Fen scrutinises the lives of the low-paid women potato pickers of the fens (in Eastern England) and ‘the playwright pins down her poetic subject matter in dialogue of impressive vigour and economy’ (Financial Times) while Serious Money is a satirical study of the effects of the Big Bang – ‘Pure genius…the first play about the city to capture the authentic atmosphere of the place.’ (Daily Telegraph)
