Ruby & Brendon Reviews:
“Ruby was immensely engaging” - The Speakeasy
“Her content is intelligently crafted and confidently delivered...I’d pay to see that.” - Theatreview
"In a world of comedy where so much is pulp fiction: fast, furious and full of action, Green is literature. His prose is astoundingly well structured. I float in them as the words flow through me, yet he spears us by harpoon during each climax. Green is a rare performer." - Art Murmers
