Book reviews

“In just a few short years Greg Gould has established himself as one of the world’s best 10-minute playwrights. With his entertaining situations, surprising characters and witty, fast paced dialogue he creates plays that are both wildly entertaining to watch, great for actors to perform and simple to stage. A Greg Gould play is full of delightful twists and turns that keep you guess- and laughing – until the very last line. Real life situations turned on their head, shaken, stirred and then served slightly chilled.” – Alex Broun, Literary Manager – Short+Sweet International (www.alexbroun.com)

“Greg Gould’s plays make other playwrights say, ‘I wish I’d written that!’. Funny and brilliantly structured, each play is a crowd pleaser and a masterclass in the art of comedy.” – Kirsty Budding, playwright and producer
