“This quartet of vignettes curl and dance around each other like smoke and sparks from a smouldering bonfire… Beautifully crafted… gets to the root of how place moulds us and retains its hold long beyond childhood, long after we think we have left the past behind.” Lyn Gardner, Stagedoor

“Four monologues that fizz… The writing is the show’s biggest strength; zingy lines & much eloquent introspection… ” The Guardian

“Sharply written…a compelling snapshot of contemporary Essex… In Sadie Hasler’s gorgeously observed Everybody Gets Born Gemma Salter revels in every richly rendered turn of phrase… gripping… an infectious energy” ★★★★ The Stage

“Working-class stories are given centre stage, the theatrical equivalent of an LS Lowry painting… The beauty of this piece of theatre is in its relative simplicity, in its relatability, and in its portrayal of an Essex its residents will recognise.” ★★★★ LondonTheatre1

“Excellent… beautifully different… complex…brightly written & engaging, with a neat mix of comedy & emotional truth… Tremendous…” Aleks Sierz

“Hugely energetic …beautifully performed…crackles” ★★★★ British Theatre

“A triumph” Romford Recorder
