Review:
Full of good writing and good writing breathes enthusiasm. It made me wish I had seen a Sarah Daniels play. It reminded me why theatre grips. Philip Ridley has a nice metaphor I like putting people on a ghost train, but I guide them safely through the other end. Cardiff s Waking Exploits should get their copy soon. They will find riches a-plenty to assist the selection for their 2013 tour. --Adam Somerset, Theatre in Wales

The introduction offers as good a succint overview of theatrical developments and new writing in the 1980s, 90s and 2000s as I've read anywhere...And any book which includes language such as 'revelling in staccato Mametian rhythms and Pinteresque menace' gets my vote for verbal imaginativeness and refusal to dumb down. --Susan Elkin, Teaching Drama, Spring 2012
