FILTHY BUSINESS: ★★★★ FROM THE TIMES

FILTHY BUSINESS REVIEW - FEISTY FAMILY SAGA GRIPPING TO THE LAST

ANN TRENEMAN, THE TIMES

 

'This new play by Ryan Craig is a winner. Yetta is part matriarch, part monster, all mother. Sara Kestelman doesn't play her so much as inhabit her, possessing her charm, manipulation and chutzpah. It's a character that is both universal and specific: we all know women with aspects of Yetta but to see her played with such focus and passion makes you sit up and take notice...You can read this play in many ways. It's about mothers, love, survival, freedom, England. But there is also a truth here about immigrants. 'I'm NOT an immigrant!' insists Yetta, Yeah. Yeah. Do go if you can.'
