"An uncommonly talented playwright... Brilliant and testing."
c/o North News, Jan 2016
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.
A brilliant orchestrator of pain.
Alfred Hickling, Guardian
