Fictional Company most recently presented the hit London premiere of SNOWFLAKE by Mike Bartlett, directed by Clare Lizzimore, co-produced with Kiln Theatre from 10 December 2019 – 25 January 2020.

Here are some of the lovely things people said about it:

★★★★★  “Simultaneously festive, caustic, refreshingly woke, authentically heartwarming and tremendous fun” WhatsOnStage

★★★★  “Bartlett’s dialogue is pure magic… a provocative and tender vision of divided Britain that suggests there is no way forward if we don’t try to understand each other”  Time Out

★★★★  “An inspired fusion, again, of the personal and the political… the play is a legit wonder, and its debates will rumble on”  The Telegraph

★★★★ “After three years of bruising politics, it seems almost super-human that playwright Mike Bartlett can write a play of such heart about what the whole mess has done to us” Evening Standard 

(More reviews for the show’s original Oxford premiere, below.)
