Josh Roche directs with graceful restrain

The Guardian on Radio (Arcola Theatre)

★ ★ ★ ★
Josh Roche handles the rich, rambling intricacy of Smith’s text with finesse, letting each moment of humour, warmth, or melancholy resonate like an echo on the airwaves.

The Stage on Radio

★ ★ ★ ★
The brilliance of Josh Roche's JMK award-winning staging is that it balances the two – honouring Corrie's personal politics and experiences while resisting a play that wants to politicise both.
