‘Astonishing skill and professionalism… you begin to wonder why more theatre isn’t done like this, until you remember that there are very few who could pull it off.
★★★★ Broadway Baby
‘Truly thrilling, its inner magic achieved through the notion of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts.’
‘Overflowed with witty heartfelt lyrics and dialogue. A cross between a gig, a musical and a spoken-word event.’
‘Three plays about growing-up, relationships and romance… are belted out by an incredibly versatile five piece that not only act their socks off but sing and accompany each other on a variety of instruments.’
‘Perfectly pitched, funny and at times strangely emotional, the detail and observational wit is flawless.’
‘A night of touchingly beautiful and powerfully frank plays.’
The New Current ★★★★★
‘One of the highlights of the programme.’
