“Welsh doesn’t make things easy for his audience...because he respects us too much.” Lyn Gardner
“This man knows how to deliver an emotional blow….There but for the grace of God (go I) has a subtle burning sadness, that reveals a wonderful talent in Adam Welsh, and that is both heart-breaking and heart-warming in its beautifully raw denouement.” - A Younger Theatre
“...a strange, unresolved and discomfiting work – a memory play that feels like REM sleep, as dreams swirl into being and the brain whirs to make sense of everything that’s happened.” - ✭✭✭✭ The Stage
“A piece of beautifully crafted storytelling…leaves you holding your breath.” - Everything Theatre
