The Gobetweenies

In The Press

"...It could be classed as Outnumbered for Radio but that would be doing a disservice to a nuanced comic take on life amongst the chattering classes..."

David Crawford, Radio Times

"... a comedy that draws successfully upon a recognisably real world for its laughs..."

Mail On Sunday

"... an entertaining view of a contemporary family..."

The Observer

"This comedy by Marcella Evaristi shows every sign of being neatly drawn from life"

Gillian Reynolds The Telegraph
