REVIEWS: “An intriguing play… slightly outrageous…an absorbing piece of theatre with a strong script”. ☆☆☆☆ LondonTheatre1
“I’m Just Here To Buy Soy Sauce is rich in gags…fluid writing is a pleasure to listen to and demonstrates that playwright Jingan Young has cherry-picked her words with a natural comic verve. It makes this show well worth catching next time it comes to town…This is a well-written and tragicomic representation of London’s property market and its exploitation by foreign investors”. ☆☆☆ Everything Theatre

14 Feb 2016 LAST DAY OF THE REST OF YOUR LIFE
Theatre N16 THE PIT PART I: HIDDEN VICE / Pokfulam Rd Productions
Dir. Grace Joseph. Starring Max Percy, May Cunningham & David East.
As producer & with various writers: David Bottomley, Charlie Howitt, Tom Crowley, Lee Anderson, Christian Graham, Julie Cheung Inin, Jessica Burgess, Arthur McBain, Andy Goddard, Duncan Gates, Darren Donohue, Gavin Whenman, Fraser Myers & Allan Johnson. REVIEWS: “To fully appreciate all of this requires the ability to be unshockable, or at least broad-minded. This is hardly Little House on the Prairie. It was edgier, fresher and mostly punchier than the sort of material presented at, say, the National Theatre or the Royal Court […] to see such a variety of shows in one sitting […] the high level of talent, both in terms of writing and acting, that despite its length, Hidden Vice left me exhilarated rather than exhausted”. ☆☆☆☆ London Theatre 1
