Brighton Actors Theatre double-bill, Acts of Violence directed by David Lavender

'Both pieces, The Presbyterian Graveyard and The Sleeping Wife concern 'orrible Brighton murders actually reported in the local press, transformed into painfully funny plays on the nature of guilt anger and repression.' (The Globe)

'Nick Burbridge, whose Acts of Violence was recently premiered by Brighton Actors Theatre at the Nightingale in Brighton, writes in the conviction that the regime under which we live deliberately keeps us in subjugation by imposing its own special language upon us.
All the information we receive through the media, he argues, is aimed at maintaining the status quo. The theatre alone provides a forum wherein the process can be subverted and exposed.' (The Stage)
