"Foley gives us wry humour, sharp dialogue and empathy...supported by confident direction from Tom O’Brien...the narrative tantalises and grips right to the end"

Evening Standard

 

****

"Tom O’Brien’s production is pacy and beautifully acted. An insightful and not disquieting look at mental illness...impressive and compassionate"

The Stage

 

****

"The performances of all actors as directed by Tom O’Brien are on point and draw the audience deep into the intimate family space. This play is an absolute gem and stands out."

West End Wilma

 

*****

"Intelligent, bold, and uncomfortably challenging, The Dogs of War lets loose an unprecedented deeper look at mental health. A deeply impactful piece of theatre that is as important as it is intense."

Grumpy Gay Critic

 

*****

"Tom O'Brien's direction is perfectly pitched...Everything about this is superb."

London City Nights

 

****

Ginger Hibiscus

 

"Tom O’Brien’s pacy production uses both the stage and the audience seats inventively...Strong and delightfully weird...brilliantly surreal"
