Susan's Breasts

'Gems's piece is a bitter dissection of the heroin generation, where bright young things attempt to maintain their rigid codes of personal freedom and loveless sex ... Sparky, sexy, sterile Susan is the object of Gems's despair, and the object of desire for her predatory he-admirers - a loutish intellectual, a wise-cracking, good-time restaurateur, and a fi lm-maker with

acute semiotics-disease. It is only the old-fashioned romantic love professed by Lemon, a Romeo-cum-seer, which makes the eponymous breasts swell with maternity. Sharply observed and often carrying a charge of rich comic irony.' - Time Out

Naked Robots

'An extremely well-written evocation of life in the style-conscious world of popular music.' - The Sunday Times

The Paranormalist

'The climax of The Paranormalist has Denholm Elliott in spotlit levitation above a bickering family in a suburban living room. Dishevelled in baggy cardy and slippers, Elliott gives an affectionate and authoritative portrayal as an English eccentric. It's a brilliant performance in an exhilarating new play which interweaves drawing-room farce with a witty use of the paranormal.' - Ann McFerran, Time Out
