“Imaginative and thought provoking writing, breaking down stereotypes of black life and times. Especially relevant at a time when black lives and their historical importance are continually being dissected and scrutinised in the media, here is proof of what black youth in britain are capable of achieving- creating art beyond their societal constrictions.”
“Black Attack saw the stage explode with a futuristic dystopian, post-apocalyptic nightmare.”
"I can think of very few examples, Ayckbourn, Sondheim, and Pinter, but I’ll now be adding Tristan Fynn-Aidenu to the list. What he has created, written and directed at the Brockley Jack theatre is nothing short of a modern masterpiece, with the ability to be translated into many more mediums of storytelling."

"Skeen! is a clever play, one that has you laughing until your sides hurt at the way in which the characters come across and interact with each other, whilst simultaneously showing that you should never really judge someone from their exterior alone. This skill of almost farce-like dialogue that Fynn-Aiduenu’s play creates is a real gift, and captures the temperature of young people and their views about each other..”
