“….With her own kind of poetry and flashes of wit, Liv Fowler conjures a world rarely visible, where subjects include which life to live, the financial inaccessibility of university and the problem that is men…”
Jane Anderson, Radio Times 24th May 2023
“…In a two-hander written by relative newbie, Liv Fowler, Shvorne Marks and Ami Metcalf , who play Em and Chloe, are fun and believable, their interaction snappy; even the in-between scenes music is good…….it was lovely to hear genuine South London accents, as well as listen to a drama that tackles the problems between men and women in an original way…’
