THE HAYSTACK: ★★★★ FROM THE DAILY MAIL

'This week I finally caught up with The Haystack, Al Blyth’s debut play about surveillance and the national security forces — and I’m glad I did. It’s an exceptionally well-plotted thriller. My only concern is that the play could be Blyth’s last if he is snapped up by Netflix.'

'Suffice to say it’s a labyrinthine plot that reminded me of the film All The President’s Men, and made the two-and-three-quarter hours fly by in what felt like half that time.'

The Haystack has been extended due to popular demand and now runs on the Main Stage until 12 March.
