On ONLY: Direct and emotionally engaging… (Venue) replete with the pin-sharp phrasing and attention to detail that’s graced Peck’s previous scripts. (Exeunt Magazine)
On BONNIE & CLYDE: There’s more than a dash of ‘Godot’ to this promising play… Adam Peck’s script has a sparse elegiac beauty. (Time Out)
On CHOCOLATE MONEY“Adam Peck’s Chocolate Money was the pick: a peppery class-relations satire…” (Venue)“Adam Peck provides another show-stealing script… a successful and achingly witty parody of “on-the-button issue” theatre” (Suit Yourself Magazine)
On OUT OF TOUCH – A TRILOGY: “Peck is a rising theatrical force to be reckoned with and has a talent worth nurturing.”(Venue) “the eloquent dialogue, smart choreography and the play’s poignant finality generate a touching atmosphere that feels entirely real.” (Metro)
On WHERE YOU CAN’T FOLLOW: “Writer Adam Peck has an instinctive feel for the heartbeat of language, and has produced an intriguing and highly-polished little gem in this piece… elegant, clever, sexy, funny, touching and recognisable.” (Venue)
On THE RED MAN: FairGround, Tobacco Factory, 2008“a wonderfully warped adult fairytale” (Metro)
