"Your work is a heady mix of the exhibitionist and the anti spectacle, whilst creating an atmosphere of seediness, imbalance and unease you use colour, objects and costumes with a sense of wit" - Melly Still, Physical Theatre Dir.
"Director Chloé Doherty deserves credit for the scope of imagination in her physical direction; all five performances are ceaselessly corporeal, and visually engaging" - EdFringe Review
”The set is ritzy and eye-catching, actors are are immaculately made-up and the attention to detail is faultless.” - London Pub Theatres
