Having already had a bunch of rave reviews including one from northern, indie review mag, The Skinny, who gave it five stars and called, "Chadwick’s true strength, the ability to distil the human experience and reproduce it in print.


This "topical, probing and quietly intense" debut is definitely one for this autumn's commute.



Also this week, roving reporter Rachel Shelley interviews writer and performer Karen Cogan about her play Drip Feed, currently on at London's Soho Theatre.


A dark comedy about the "messiness of being youngish, female and queer in Ireland", Cogan will be telling Rachel what we can expect from her newest play and more. 


Oh, and the wonderful Amie Taylor, editor of The LGBTQ Arts Review, will review Drip Feed too.
