'Quirky and sometimes wickedly funny... DeLappe’s grasp of teenage mannerisms is uncanny.' Evening Standard ★★★★ 

'A skilfully drawn coming-of-age tale... the dialogue is intricately layered and captures every uptick of speech – on the page it looks like music.'  ★★★★

‘An intricate portrait of young womanhood... bruisingly authentic. A true ensemble piece, absorbing and stealthily affecting. Score.’ The Times ★★★★

'As an exhilarating a 90 minutes as you can hope to spend in the theatre... leaves you breathless.' Time Out London ★★★★ 

'It's hard to believe that this is Sarah DeLappe's first play, so vivid are the characters, so sophisticated the dramaturgy, and so sparky but authentic the dialogue... this deceptively simple depiction of a teenage girls soccer team in small-town America comes on like a breath of fresh air... extremely funny, often crude, beautifully observed...and in the end, quietly devastating.'
