Review of BBC Radio 4 series 'Talking to Strangers'.. co-written with Sally Phillips:
Other press for previous productions:
“A classy, likeable exercise in polished surrealism”
★★★★ Time Out Critic’s Choice
“Packed with ingenious parodies, ludicrous impersonations and sex”
“One of the funniest offerings in the West End this season. Tickets to this short, sweet show should be a must on everybody’s shopping list this year.”
★★★★ The Stage
“Gets the biggest laughs of the show... a brilliantly talented comedian”
“Daft and deliriously funny... Harriet’s personal voyage enables Bevan to reel out a range of perfectly executed and totally bats characters. A strong debut from an undoubted talent”
★★★★ The List
“Surreal, funny, even moving...Prizes will surely follow”
