‘This hugely enjoyable comedy of bad town-and-country manners is a reminder of what a singular voice [Gary Owen] is, capable of prodding at all our hypocrisies and showing the worst, but also the best, of which we are all capable. He's a hugely moral writer, but the message is always delivered with mischievous glee’ Guardian

‘One of Wales' foremost playwrights… Blackthorn focuses on the clash between the newcomers and their expectations, and also the way of life a Welsh farmer holds dear’ BBC Wales
