Great acting, Edgy, Ambitious, Clever, Absorbing

See it if you like interlinked stories edging towards science fiction mixed with M R James horror; charismatic female monologues; minimalism

Don't see it if you don't want to see the joins (you can see the set being built at one point!) or want a straightforward narrative - this is much twistier

Disappointing

See it if You want to hear ramblings of different characters through 3 30 minute plays. At times shouting and screeching whatever on their mind

Don't see it if You are looking for proper plays and hate one person performances

"Kate O’Flynn conjures its magic from beneath the ink. She effortlessly wields McDowall’s semi-poetic language like a syringe."

"This is theatre that works its way beneath your skin: unsettling, transfixing drama from a singular imagination."

"...the overriding take away thought from 'all of it' as a whole, beyond seeing one of this country’s most exciting actresses at work, is that this is what a collaboration between Beckett and Bennett (Alan) might have looked like. Either way, it’s a tour de force, and she is astonishing."

“It feels like a modern classic, a monologue that could become a showpiece for O’Flynn or other brave performers. This may be all of it, but I want more.”

"O’Flynn performs this series of snapshots of the inner life... at a snappy pace which suggests the speed of time passing. She is enthralling, funny, sad and moving."

"McDowall wrote all three scripts for O’Flynn, who is extraordinary at channelling his disturbing, poetic vision of the characters’ hidden worlds. .. Unforgettable."

"All three poems by McDowall were wonderful to watch, although the concluding ‘All of It’ was certainly the strongest piece...This was certainly like no other show I have ever seen, but it is a show I am more than thankful that I have seen. McDowall’s writing makes the ordinary extraordinary, and O’Flynn delivers his words in one of the most powerful performances I have seen this year."

The Guardian (UK)

"Alistair McDowall’s plays are portals to the extraordinary, his trilogy of solo plays may be even more audacious – unfolding the experience of ordinary life from the inside. And these giddying texts are given astonishing life by Kate O’Flynn."
