'...Sarah Rutherford's work has a really warming feeling to it. It's totally unabashed, completely comfortable with its subject matter. It's a little off-piste, slightly unhinged and unafraid to make light of the whole situation without ever seeming insensitive.' Full Review
for a previous production "The soundtrack fuses jazz and scat with cultural world music, all supported by a highly rhythmic, electro style beat. It’s joyous to listen to...It shouldn’t be completely slick and seamless – the raw energy that emanates from this troupe is part of the joy of watching...But in parts, this is a messy performance. The movements are fluid and well executed, but too often lack a feeling of self-confidence that puts an audience at ease...The potential and the promise are there in spades though." Full Review
for a previous production "'The Nature Of Forgetting' oozes with such powerful memories of a simplistic upbringing, complete with friends and love and life in all its magnificent glory...A true ensemble piece, each character contributing to the overall picture of joy, laughter and loss. Its premise is both exquisitely simple and inherently complex, a concept that is reflected in both the narrative and the execution...It’s a gradual, unstoppable force that affects from within."

for a previous production "The main issue with this play is that it is simply pleasant, twee, and harmless. In other words, vanilla – dated and ultimately not particularly memorable...Ross makes traditional, expected choices for a play that bubbles with the undercurrent of revolution...In 'The Roundabout,' actors stumble over lines and unintentionally jump into each other’s dialogue, so while the production rolls along inoffensively, it doesn’t build any pace, impetus or drive."
