The Scotsman

for a previous production “Hilarious, heartfelt, and provocative...Ley’s script achieves a deft and sophisticated balance of subjects and registers, shedding light on queer experience with humour, warmth, passion, and complexity...It’s a play that insists on the joy of the unexpected, the strange fluidity of time, the power of storytelling, and the ecstasy of radical culture...Far from sentimental nostalgia...a reminder of how precious and precarious spaces of real difference truly are.” Full Review

The Scotsman

for a previous production "He weaves compelling narratives that are set in grotesque realms of eerie, alarming detail, expressed through mesmerizing, finely wrought doggerel, and accompanied by a sophisticated running soundtrack of bespoke music and sound effects...It’s also his strongest work yet. There’s a powerful cohesion to the stories’ engagement with very different kinds of mythologizing." Full Review
