Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Great acting, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if You want to see a fantastic solo acting performance from the actress and want to see heavyweight issues explored in a skilful manner.

Don't see it if You're not particularly interested in American politics or if you're looking for a lighter subject matter.

The play, small in itself, carries its own devastating and seismic power...If the lockdowns turned the monologue into an overfamiliar form, Wolf Cub remoulds it into something new, exciting and dangerous again.

It’s a wild, incantatory travelogue, like an Angela Carter novella with lethal weapons and a touch of American Gothic...This isn’t a solemn documentary; it’s more of a fever dream.

Ché Walker’s play is a coming-of-age story in Reagan’s America. But, with years of ground to cover, the result is a thinly drawn history...Despite this, Wolf Cub drags as a play. It never roars.

...Ché Walker's gutsy and subversive new play Wolf Cub instead wonders whether humans are in fact qualified to bring up other humans...Wolf Cub doesn't take long to bear its teeth.
