"Fantastic show last night. Great variety of questions. Good for a mixture of ages. Everyone supports each other when anyone wins a crown. It's a brilliant interactive show and highly recommend. I will hopefully be back before the day of the fringe."

Tales From a Haunted Bookshop

"I visited today with my son, aged 6 and we both loved it! With the appropriate mix of comedy, creepiness and multiple character impersonations, the show was both entertaining and engaging - with a little audience participation. This was my son's first festival show and was a smash for him - he now wants to see more! Definitely worth a watch!!! 🙂"

"I was truly transported by this show. Before coming to this play, I didn't know this world at all. By the end I was moved by Guffy and the small town where she's from. A mirror into how the lives of these people have been affected by the world around them..."

Certain Death and Other Considerations

"a haunting insight into the lives of regular people who know they’re gonna die, amazingly performed and aided by brilliant writing, funny and realistic !"

Jess G

Certain Death and Other Considerations

"This is an incredible play. One of the only pieces that really captures this exact moment, and depicts the sort of climate anxiety that so many of us are feeling today. Its portrayal is incredibly moving, yet it maintains a healthy sense of humor throughout. Please go see it if you ever think about the world ending."

Chris D

"Fantastic show with a beautiful singing voice."

Tighearnan N

Vincent - His Quest to Love and Be Loved
