Early reviews for IN DOGGERLAND are good… 09/11/2013

Benjamin Blyth and Jennifer Tan – (c) Devin Ainslie

“Manchester-based company Box of Tricks know how to pick their writers; Tom Morton-Smith’s script is both poetic and philosophical, a thoughtful meditation on the impact of loss… There are some really heart-wrenching moments… In Doggerland is a touching and funny play that explores the lives of four people bought together by tragedy and hope.”
What’s On Stage ★★★★

In Doggerland is a mature, thoughtful drama about loss, responsibility and relationships, sensitively directed by Hannah Tyrrell-Pinder. Its central themes could have been treated sensationally, but here are handled with intelligence and genuine emotional resonance. A fine play, see it if you can.”
Remote Goat ★★★★★

“A smart and engaging new play… An intricate and intriguing story is peeled away with extreme delicacy. Morton-Smith and director Hannah Tyrrell-Pinder create four concise and credible characters”
Manchester Theatre Awards

“Hannah Tyrrell-Pinder directs with an impressive sense of pace, allowing the scenes to unfold naturally without fear of silences… It’s an intriguing piece with some clever ideas, likeable characters and even some nice flashes of humour and certainly worth a look.”
