Penelope Skinner's new play EIGENGRAU opens at the Bush

Congratulations to Penelope Skinner, whose new play EIGENGRAU has opened at the Bush Theatre; focusing on the interweaving lives of a disparate group of Londoners, the show has been enthusiastically received by the critics:

It's funny, tough, dark and, for an almost new dramatist, supremely promising. Skinner takes a wicked glee in puncturing pretensions. (The Times)

Skinner's biting new black comedy... ...a finely focused four-hander... ...Skinner proves that she has an acute ear for the would-be poker games, the reciprocal inequalities of sincerity, and the crackpot cross-purposes that are the province of two-handed conversation. (The Independent)

Hugely enjoyable tragic-comedy... ...brilliantly funny; the fantastic lines coming fast and furious. (Guardian)

Skinner's smart new play...'s the writing that provides the most intoxicating hits. (Evening Standard)

The four characters are beautifully and observantly sketched out... ...Skinner's play is a strong mix of comedy and excrutiating embarrassment. (The Stage)

An hysterically funny perspective on 21st-centruy relationships. (WhatsOnStage)

The play will run until Saturday 10th April.
