"An uncommonly talented playwright... Brilliant and testing." 

Time Out

Torben Betts

c/o North News, Jan 2016

TORBEN BETTS


He is just about the most extraordinary writer of drama we have...a boldly visionary poet...a political Beckett. A flamingly original writer we ignore at our peril. 
Liz Lochhead, former National Poet of Scotland

 

Betts's profound and highly original theatrical voice.
Daily Telegraph

A brilliant orchestrator of pain.

Alfred Hickling, Guardian
