From the moment Anna Jordan’s cast of five bursts onto the stage, joshing and skirmishing, her helter-skelter account of the last evening in the life of a street gang grips the attention and never lets it go. She draws from her actors a great sense of youthful energy thrusting to express itself… Anna Jordan is an interesting and exciting new voice in the theatre.
