Stephen Poliakoff 'has been one of our sharpest and least predictable writers for the past twenty years' (Daily Telegraph) Clever Soldiers: "is a thoughtful play about violence" (Times) which attacks the mythology of Oxbridge against the background of war; Hitting Town, a powerful play about incest is "a riveting piece of theatre...a stupendous achievement" (Sunday Telegraph); City Sugar: "A savage dissection of that pristine slagheap of Our Times - mass culture" (Time Out); Shout Across the River: "traces the progress of a passionate and extraordinary relationship between a young mother and her teenage daughter played against the background of a vast suburb of south London." (Guardian); American Days: "Into the escapist limbo of a top record company executive's office tumble three teenagers, spotted by an insecure talent scout and now given a hit or miss chance to impress...Poliakoff has the dramatic ability to make you care very much...a completely enjoyable play" (Financial Times); Strawberry Fields is about three young members of the 'lost generation' of the sixties: "Imaginative and controversial...a sort of Pinteresque fantasy with thriller overtones." (Plays and Players)
