‘Coel is by turns casually cruel, hilariously funny, naïve, wise and vulnerable. Her play tackles some difficult themes, including sexual assault, violence, and underachievement across generations…a serious new talent.’ Londonist

'an engrossing, engaging and compelling one-woman show... nothing short of virtuosic. ' - What's On Stage

‘…a promising, resilient artist.’ Ché Walker

 '[a] firecracker of a monologue...that Coel has succeeded in bringing her [character], with all her struggle to pronounce the word articulacy, to a stage at the National Theatre, seems like a triumph – but far from enough.' Four stars - Guardian
