An unfinished man

The Yard Theatre

Dir. Taio Lawson


“One of the most original and inventive shows I’ve seen in years –

atmospheric, beautifully acted and designed… This new piece confirms

[Baruwa-Etti] as a seriously exciting new talent.” – Evening Standard 


“Baruwa-Etti’s play manages something seriously impressive. It's rich

in metaphors and ambiguities, while also being chest-tighteningly

specific” – Time Out


“A bold, troubling, brilliant examination of the devastating effects

of depression” – WhatsOnStage


“An exhilarating production. The performances are so rich, the

premise so compelling” – The Stage


“A perfect marriage of a considered script and creative and impactful

staging, it’s not one to miss.” – The Rendition

“Delivers originality in lashings. [Baruwa-Etti] is a real talent

and his innovation is at this play’s heart.” – The Guardian


The Sun, the Moon, and the Stars

Theatre Royal Stratford East

Dir. Nadia Fall

and Shakespeare swirl together in this searingly articulate cry of pain,

rage and hope… This debut play is one that stands out” – The Stage


“It is a challenging and staggering play,

and a story that leaves me with hope” – A Younger Theatre



“This is a blinder” – The Evening Standard
