Review:

"Someone Who'll Watch Over Me: 'Frank McGuinness's sensitive, absorbing play'. The Times Dolly West's Kitchen: 'No play has ever looked into Ireland's past and found there its future with the mix of wit and wisdom, death and despair, life and love, that characterises every line and every corner and every moment of Dolly West's Kitchen'. Spectator
