"'If one of the problems facing new playwrights is the expectation that each of their plays should be similar in style, Wade - proved that you could radically change both form and content - Not every writer delivers on their early promise. As this collection clearly shows, Wade certainly has.' Aleks Sierz, from his Introduction Colder Than Here: 'Laura Wade's play is a 90-minute masterpiece, a jewel, dark bu ttranslucent. It is a play of love, death and grief: the grief that is hardest to bear, because it begins before the loved one dies.' Sunday Times Breathing Corpses: 'The tension, the emotions and the sense of absurdity and fear are brilliantly handled...A terrifying tour de force.' Sunday Times Other Hands: 'This is an extraordinary feat - a vicious satire with a heart of gold - wrought with peculiar subtlety and intelligence.' The Spectator"
