The Swallowing Dark

a claustrophobic thriller… passionate and intense…an astonishing piece of storytelling, lightened with deft humour, and made memorable by some truly stunning scenes Carole Baldock
Whats On Stage

[Nunnery’s] terse, interrogative style makes this closeted space in the Playhouse's eaves feel more like an incident room than an auditorium Alfred Hickling
The Guardian

her ever-emerging skill as a writer is fast seeing Nunnery develop as one of the finest dramatist this city has produced for a generation… brilliantly talented… beautiful imagery…a fantastic, poignant and necessary play which sees Nunnery’s stature grow and grow
Liverpool Daily Post

Lizzie Nunnery’s thought-provoking new play… dialogue which is sinuous, rhythmic and colourful … a sense of claustrophobic tension throughout … gripping Catherine Jones
Liverpool Echo

A little gem of a play Colin Serjent

a powerful, intimate and morally complex play Kate Kellaway
