THE HAYSTACK: ★★★★ FROM THE SUNDAY TIMES

THE HAYSTACK

David Jays, THE SUNDAY TIMES

'The ratio of needles to haystack hobbles counter-terrorism - whatever you seek is buried in wodges of everyday data. That's the context to this full-length debut play by former research economist Al Blyth. In his engrossing thriller, two young geeks at GCHQ seek the source of embarrassing press stories about Saudi-British collusion.'

'Roxana Silbert's production moves sleekly between online activity and meatspace, filling our pockets with paranoia.'

The Haystack runs on the Main Stage until 7 March
