“Channel 4 executives would kill to squeeze something with this much life.” The Argos, July 25, 2000

“Jim Madden has written an extraordinary script that allows his cast to show off all of their theatrical skills to huge effect. The wonderful writing loops about, losing its own thread deliberately, like a Vodka-swigging coke-head on a big hit. Which is exactly what this Class A comedy deserves to be….Sarah Mann gives a dazzling performance in the frenzied, jabbering and very challenging role of Penny” Diane Dubois, THE SCOTSMAN, August 2000

To Jim Madden,

Just a note to tell you how much we appreciated your play on Friday night. The writing and direction were superb and the acting was first-class. Please pass our compliments to Sarah and Lorna. It was a privilege to be present at such a feast of talent; we wish you continued success and look forward to attending NASTY BOY shortly. We shall certainly be recommending your work to all our friends.John A and David L (Audience of 3rd August 2001)
