"All three pieces are beautifully written by Martin Foreman"
"Martin Foreman's Californian Lives is a masterclass on the art of the monologue"
"Martin Foreman’s writing sparkles at times and is shot through with wry humour and an air of melancholy."

Sometimes you sit, watch the trains, the sunset, the rain. Sometimes you talk. Tell your story if you've a mind to. Trouble is, memory changes things. Things
you want to forget. Things you want to remember that never
happened. Happens to everybody. Gets so, nobody's story's true. Not yours, not mine. But it's all we've got.
First and Fiftieth
Brothers, I thought, seeing a resemblance. But the family names were different. And unlike the other vaults and sepulchres, this monument had no
overarching sign indicating that it belonged to a single family.
Nikolas and Nikos
We are drawn deeper and deeper into the lives of these two young men, finding ourselves in turn irritated and empathising with each youth’s moodiness. We silently call out to Jonathan to stop sulking – until we understand why he sulks. We are embarrassed by Shane’s aggression – until we understand what drives it. We watch the two of them come together in the wrong way and at the wrong time and wonder how this ménage à trois will end.
