for a previous production "A seamless ensemble cast…The imagination on show here pushes beyond the space of the stage, and permeates the time left after the actors retreat…‘Battlefield’ captures the spirit and romance of this Indian saga, translating its otherworldly and spiritual elements to the stage without falling into the easy traps of cultural appropriation or cliché. This is an allusive and emotional play…The beauty and purity of this piece is evident in the tears it causes at something never quite articulated." Full Review
for a previous production "Those who came to this production expecting blood, gore and stereotype won’t be too disappointed. Young Eve is afraid of garlic and crosses, and she has quite a bite, but Wilde rigorously unpicks the formulae of adolescent fiction, tearing notions and themes out of the books and exposing their dirty horror. With characters that dip between naturalism and the supernatural, "Cuddles" embraces its fictionality and lets its blurred boundaries enrich a very unusual coming of age narrative." Full Review
for a previous production "This fragile and utterly madcap narrative is held together with control and cohesion...Theatre steps up as the place where any sense of instability can be explored and rationalised." Full Review
