"Heroin(e) for Breakfast
is quite astonishingly accomplished, so beautifully written,
staged and acted

Philip Stokes play (which he also directs

here personified in a Marilyn Monroe-like character called Heroin(e),
the lives of three young flatmates.
They share some dark secrets, and the last
when Heroin(e) triumphantly works her fatal attraction
are shocking and breathtakingly sad". Veronica

is a stonkingly good play by
about the effects of heroin addiction, but so many critics have left the venue
by its heart-wrenching ending that the theatres sharing-and-caring press officers
are now inviting reviewers into their office for restorative tea and hugs after
the show". The Observer
