“Swords Castle is a key element in the development of Swords Cultural Quarter and performances such as My Bedsit Window by David Gilna give an idea of the immense potential of the overall project to develop and deliver culturally for Swords and Fingal” 

Mayor of Fingal, Councillor Mary MCCamley 

“Fingal has a widespread and deep artistic culture. David is an exciting local playwright with a great love and understanding of where he has come from. These performances are yet another giant leap forward for the Arts in Fingal” 

The Sunday Independent

“My Bedsit Window is surreal, kaleidoscopic, and bursting with energy”

“Writer David Gilna (who also plays William) uses language deftly, and is clearly passionate about the world of writing” 

The Sunday World 

“Playwright and star David Gilna has a hit on his hands” 

“Gilna’s new play is a bolt of laughter” 

“A must see performance for all actors” 

The Red Curtain Review 

“There is a vibrancy, energy and a purity in the wide eyed, gung-ho attitude of William; you believe and hope that he will take on the world and win. With a knowing glance, humour and the bizarreness of people and life that he discovers along the way, we have an engaging coming of age style play”

“In the end, this is a solid play, helped by strong writing and acting”

“There is a sense that you could listen to William Blake and his mis-adventures for longer. A wonderfully entertaining play, with a great central performance”

The Times 

“Charismatic David mesmerises as William Blake” 

No More Workhorse

“Gilna’s energy as he shares it is infectious on stage” 

“This is an extremely entertaining watch. It also serves as a somewhat cautionary tale to those who think that there is such a thing as overnight success”
