‘Through his writing Bovell sets up a rehearsal room that must be like the bend of the river itself. A place where black and white meet and must learn to negotiate. He could have made choices that represented the blackfellas as absent figures in the distance that say nothing ... but instead he has created a more culturally powerful script that explores black and white relations on and off the stage.’ - Wesley Enoch
