What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Vivacious and utterly engaging… There is not a breath out of place in this totally absorbing script, the attention to detail is masterly" – What’s On Stage (5 stars)

"Fascinating… combines class conflict with an account of life on the Welsh borders… a vivid picture of the way sex relieves the monotony of small-town life" – Guardian

"An inordinately clever little piece… one has the peculiar sense that it is the words themselves that are leading the action onwards… The Welsh Boy is a seriously class act." – Telegraph
