Fever Dream's A Pure Riot, So It Is

So, after weeks of hunting round the Southside, we finally know the answer to "Where's Terry?"

Douglas Maxwell's new play opened to the press on Saturday 25 April, and audiences are having a riot of a time at this "weird and chaotic" (The Guardian) show at the Citz.

"...an ambitious hymn to human solidarity." ★★★★ The Guardian
"...a fantastical love letter, not just to the Govanhill neighbourhood it is set in, but to the city itself. "  ★★★★ The Herald
"...a mighty exploding bin-bag of ideas, images and slightly battered characters."
★★★★ The Scotsman 
"rending the Citz as a highly recommendable destination for the next two weeks." ★★★★ The Public Reviews 
"Maxwell’s script weaves between delirium and social realism, for an intelligent blend of the mythical and the realistic." ★★★★ The Stage
