    As Artistic Director Paul Robinson directed Theatre503’s first Second Look production, a revival of Simon Donald’s The Life of Stuff. A comic fly-on-the-wall snapshot of eight lives careering out of control. Small-time crook and aspirant pharmaceutical entrepreneur Willie Dobie's best-laid plans unravel when human nature takes its predictably unpredictable course.

    Simon Donald’s play premiered at the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh before transferring the Donmar Warehouse in 1993.

    a vivid, kaleidoscopic staging by Paul Robinson, the drama is as jagged and glittering as shattered glass

    Sam Marlowe
    The Arts Desk

    Paul Robinson delivers a top-quality, ten-to-the-dozen fringe revival

    Matt Trueman
    Time Out

    a raw and visceral energy magnified by a superb cast whose performances sparkle with conviction.

    The Stage

    Paul Robinson’s production... has set the bar high for the rest of the ‘Second Look’ season.
