Reviews for The High Life


As the play comes to a close we feel not only that we have become acquainted with someone but that in many ways a mirror has been held up to our own lives.


The High Life highlights an important perspective on the toxic corporate workplace. Witty, angry and unyielding – a powerful piece of very real storytelling.
