Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Sinewy, stinging, witty... it's as if Bartlett has taken the nastiest needling from a Mamet or a Pinter play and put them into a space of pure verbal aggression." - London Times

"Short, slick and emotionally unflinching... delivers a decisive punch." - The Stage

"A gem of a new play... chillingly evokes the dynamics of bullying, in school, the work place, and elsewhere." - Whatsonstage.com

"A writer with a startling breadth of ambition coupled with an ear for dialogue unmatched by many of his contemporaries... Bull taps into something incredibly relevant and potent." - Exeunt Magazine
