★★★★ ‘…there’s just too much talent, no weak links…one of the most successful new writing nights I’ve seen this year.’ – viewfromthegods

★★★ ‘…I really enjoyed the evening, I laughed (A LOT), and I was close to tears at points. It was great to see new writing (playing to a packed house!) given not only a space but encouragement, guidance and challenges. A fantastic project – long may it continue’. –everything theatre

★★★’…all the actors had a gift for timing…overall this was an enjoyable evening and a – truly collective – company to watch.’ –female arts
