for a previous production "Monica Bauer's script is astonishing: whether relating the tragic death that motivates the almost optimistic finale – resilience and hope maintain a shaky hold on the jazz drummer-turned-social entrepreneur – or describing the magic of a band jamming together, it doesn't need anything more than the fluid performances of Russell Jordan and Kailah S King to impress."

for a previous production "Penny Arcade is a counter-cultural legend. Unlike the false rebels of rock'n'roll, who are willing to relax into nostalgia and revisit their glorious past, Arcade is still raging...With only a live DJ mix for support, she takes on what she sees as the triumph of advertising and the gentrification of the mind...She recalls a preacher, shouting to the wilderness. It is a bracing hour, a sermon stripped of theatricality but those who have ears will hear." Full Review
for a previous production "While its verbatim script and loose structure prevents ’5 Guys’ from becoming an entirely coherent piece of theatre–the characters are inconsistent and the episodes don't cohere into a dramatic narrative–it achieves its polemical aim as a warning against casual sex and drugs…By the finale, the production has made its point…It is as shocking as a government-funded advert from the 1980s, with a tombstone casting a shadow over the cheeky, fun-seeking characters."
