Cos whether you like it or not, some way, everything that went before, is fed to them who come after.

Generations of secrets have broken the Brook family.

Siblings split-up, traded-off, treated differently.

Angel, the youngest, has called a family meeting to sift through the wreckage. And she’s not leaving until they’ve confronted the truth about how and why her family failed her.

Where you standing? I say where you standing on this? You think it happened or you don’t think it happened?

Royal Court [Off West End]

“Yields its secrets slowly. The structure is almost poetic... Tense production... slowly tightens its grip... Compelling. ”

Sarah Crompton (What's On Stage, Guardian)

“An astonishing performance from Leonce... she’s soulful, angry and piercingly smart. ”

Henry Hitchings (Evening Standard)

“The atmosphere becomes fraught as dusk turns to darkness in Martello-White’s compelling drama... A spot-on ensemble. ”

Lyn Gardner (The Guardian)

“Brutal... Martello-White’s text uncompromisingly hones in on the racial politics of this sprawling mixed race family. ”

Alice Saville (Time Out, Independent)

“Non-linear, formally adventurous, at times bewildering... A sophisticated piece of writing on race, nature and nurture. ”

Tim Bano (The Stage, Time Out)

“Blazing family drama... Stripped back, raw and exposed.... The cast are uniformly excellent... Witty, inventive structure. ”

Chris Bennion (The Times, The Stage, Telegraph)

“The rapidity of the exchanges can be sizzling... Too poetic, too hesitant and too vague... Often willfully obscure. ”

Aleks Sierz (Arts Desk, The Stage)

“Often crackling. The performers, among whom Leonce and Ové particularly shine, are without exception high velocity. ”

Susannah Clapp (The Observer)
