‘Alan Ayckbourn for millennials’, ‘a sparky evening, stylishly delivered’ 

- Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

‘Strong performances make this production zing — the young foursome pop with the vitality of Barnes’s dialogue’.  ‘Barnes’s comedy also recalls Neil LaBute at his best.’ 

- Kate Maltby, The Times  

‘This contemporary drawing room comedy by David K Barnes…is properly funny. Birthday Suit is a mercilessly tense piece of writing that clashes Noel Coward with Edward Albee to

quite profound effect.’
