“Tom Walmsley… wields sex and violence like a double-edged sword in The Workingman and The Jones Boy, his first two plays…. In his hands, they become installments of torture in a world of tortured souls, which makes for a harrowing and nearly brilliant evening of theatre….

“In The Jones Boy… Walmsley takes an uncompromising look at a junkie completely under the thumb of his buddy. Resentment simmers underneath until it boils over in a knifing, an incident witnessed by their prostitute girl friends with a mixture of horror and wonder.”

— Jack Kapica, The Globe & Mail, January 21, 1977
