"Scrounge is a seething piece of theatre that looks its foes dead in the eye as it mercilessly takes apart their lies... this is a gutturally angry work of realism." –Toby Skelton, Norwich Radical

"I would quite like to tie a few selfish MPs to some seats and make them listen to the effects of their heartlessness on real people." – Julian Swainson, Norwich Eye
