Praise for Happy New Year, Colin Burstead:
'***** breathlessly funny with fast and seething insults, uniquely crafted to every character. Wheatley captures family frustrations that are heavily relatable to those of us blessed and burdened with big families, and with such powerful and hilarious depth.' - Culture Whisper
