Two plays by "one of our sharpest and least predictable writers" (Daily Telegraph) Blinded by the Sun revolves around a scientific fraud in an English University. Through the characters of three scientists, it explores how the pressure to succeed, and the need to create hype, can cause conflict within the modern scientific world. In Sweet Panic a child psychologist's understanding of contemporary life is brought into question when she finds herself stalked by the mother of one of her young clients. "Stephen Poliakoff's brilliant new play is a spiritual thriller for the 1990s - which certainly does not mean that once the 1990s are over it will be tired and dated...Sweet Panic will survive because of its intensity and perception." (Sunday Times)
