for a previous production “In Borgesian non-linear style, Ley has created a narrative that allows Reid and McVarish to explore a spectrum of characters...A thoroughly entertaining play that’s chock full of local references but ones informed by wider and bigger issues. Has a slight ‘hand knitted’ feel but is none the worse for that...Radical and politically aware though it is, most of the play focused on gay men with the other 50% of the gay population being somewhat underrepresented."

for a previous production "It is a daunting task to review a show that has already been lauded, awarded, and been a previous Fringe First winner. However, this is no hardship. Matthew Zajac’s one man show is a riveting tour de force...This is the story of one man, and the story of every man, of humanity. A marvellous piece of theatre." Full Review

Edinburgh Guide

for a previous production "The technically brilliant and utterly enveloping and immersive installation takes the form of a diorama in a carousel. To a brilliantly chimed soundscape, a series of static figures appear in unbelievably detailed miniature tableaux, channelling the ‘aesthetic of a graphic novel’ and brought to life by the voices of a fine cast of actors. It is simple yet elaborate, involving immaculate timing and co-ordination behind the scenes...Don’t miss this unique theatrical experience!" Full Review
