Delilah has things on her mind. While her parents spit venom at one another, she’s in her room hanging out with friends, recording new ringtones, talking Harry Potter and planning her 13th birthday party. She’s also developing a crush on their 21-year-old tenant. Surely something this exciting can’t be bad. Love’s never simple.

This blistering debut written by Anya Reiss when she was just 17, premiered at The Royal Court (London) to critical acclaim. A chilling examination of family politics and the confusion of adolescence, Spur of the Moment examines the way we grow, parent and mature, here, now.

My jaw drops. This is the most accomplished debut from a young playwright I have ever had the pleasure to see
