"This collection of energetic, fun and emotionally honest, tragi-comic plays explore the turbulent journey from childhood through adolescence towards eventual adulthood. DECKY DOES A BRONCO 'One of the finest plays to emerge from a Scottish working-class story in the last ten years...the sheer force and depth of Maxwell's study of an end of childhood and an abrupt loss of innocence brings tears to the eyes.' The Scotsman 'A good deed in a naughty world - Ten years on, Decky Does A Bronco has lost none of its ability to excite the senses and stop the heart.' Sunday Herald HELMET 'Douglas Maxwell's impeccably observed little script transcends the everyday to tap into what moves the young and the troubled. The Glasgow Herald 'This extraordinary chronicler of youth.' Scottish Daily Mail MANCUB 'A near perfect encapsulation of the world of a troubled teen.' The Glasgow Herald 'A corker of a show that I'd urge everyone to see as soon as they can.' The Mail On Sunday 'Amazingly engaging...a must see' The List THE MOTHER SHIP Winner of the Brian Way Award 2009 for Best Play for a Younger Audience. TOO FAST Performed by 25 Youth Theatres in 2011 as part of the National Theatre's NT Connections Project."
