" 'DRUM' is an articulate mediation on a well-worn subject with animated moments alongside the driving discourse. It captures the messy complexities of assimilation versus integration and notions of homeland and diaspora identity." Full Review

Music is the third character in Bangers, expertly manipulated by ever-present DJ-cum-orchestrato Kamara ... whose playful musical choices and sound effects control the tone of each scene. Bangers is a fantastic night of lyrical and energetic storytelling. Full Review

The Stage (UK)

Thematically, the piece is monotonous and underdeveloped. The cast are mostly engaging despite Mike Alfred’s sparse direction ... for a piece about sleep-deprived mania, it had a surprisingly lethargic effect. Full Review

This one-woman show is vivid in its storytelling and Day speaks authoritatively on the lived experience of young women, but its call-to-arms resolution is nothing we haven’t seen before. Day’s confident and vulnerable writing holds the piece together and female audiences will find plenty in the piece that resonates. Full Review

The production is comical but clunky at times. Though an uneven production, it is a harrowingly truthful portrayal of the hardship suffered by South-Asian women, which demands attention. It would also be wise to read the trigger warnings. Full Review

SPLINTERED
Soho
The Stage (UK)

The trauma painted in Splintered has been utilised by Aboud and her team into the creation of their own “carnival of truths” which resists norms, challenges audience perceptions and celebrates queer love and joy. And it does so with serious flair. Full Review

Raya
Hampstead
WhatsOnStage

Though Raya has many of the components of a nostalgia-fuelled romance, there’s very little chemistry on display on stage. Full Review
