by Chris Urch


Guardian Top 10 Theatre of 2015 - Alfred Hickling

â??â??â??â??â?? "Chris Urch's second play â?? about homophobia in Uganda â?? is a proper stunner. â??The Rolling Stoneâ?? is packed with lines that sing, slaps that sting and scenes that will break your heart." Miriam Gillinson, Time Out

â??â??â??â?? "Chris Urchâ??s scorching play... he writes with rare passion about the ugly politics of persecution â?? and about how far people are prepared to go for those they love" Henry Hitchings, Evening Standard

â??â??â??â?? "Premiered in this taut, splendidly acted production by Ellen McDougall, the piece packs a devastating emotional punch." Paul Taylor, The Independent

â??â??â??â?? "With the Anglican communion narrowly avoiding schism over gay rights, Urchâ??s compelling play could hardly be more timely" Michael Billington, The Guardian

â??â??â??â?? "Ellen McDougallâ??s production has a scorching, sweat-drenched intensity" Sam Marlowe, The Times

â??â??â??â?? "Chris Urchâ??s Bruntwood Prize-winning play crashes into Richmondâ??s Orange Tree Theatre with the force of a very small, but very real meteor... an unflinching drama" David Hutchison, The Stage

â??â??â??â?? "Chris Urch is already becoming one of British theatre's major talents" Daisy Bowie-Sell, WhatsOnStage

"an intense, searing and deeply moving production, perfectly staged" Laura Peatman, A Younger Theatre
