"Invisible Friends""It's a tribute to Ayckbourn's later work, breaking free as it does from the constraints of naturalism, that it taps primitive fantasies and fears that children can easily respond to..."--"Independent" "This Is Where We Came In""With wry discipline the play celebrates artistic anarchy, ruptures in convention, the rejuvenation of form. This is the territory of experimental fiction...the sort of thing you expect form Fowles, Burgess or the French...No adult, with or without children...should miss it."--"Daily Telegraph" My Very Own Story"There aren't enough good plays for very young audiences but in the past few years Ayckbourn has added two or three new classics...It sounds like Stoppard for tots and it is, complete with exuberant wordplay."--"Guardian"
