MEDIA REVIEWS
"Attempts on Her Life; 'Crimp writes with extraordinary precision. He has discovered a dramatic form that perfectly reflects the violent, disorienting times in which we live.' Daily Telegraph; The Misanthrope; 'This is not just an updating of Moliere's great social tragi-comedy but a thrillingly sophisticated modern version of a classical play... The writing is cool, sharp and ferociously funny.' Sunday Times; No One Sees the Video; 'Crimp's dialogue is spare, edgy, rigorously controlled and often very funny. But beneath the poised surface of the words, he creates a growing feeling of tension, even of menace, of lives of quiet but nonetheless profound desperation.' Daily Telegraph; The Country; 'In the modern manner, this is a short, sharp shock, without redemption. In the language of drugs, a hit.' Sunday Times 'Martin Crimp is one of the hottest properties in Europe.' Guardian
