The Arts Desk

In the end, Wilkin’s charm and sincerity carry the evening, which climaxes in a brilliant image that combines platonic love with political defiance. You won’t regret, if you can pardon the word play, shedding a tear.

For a previous production

The plot drives towards a kind of platonic love story between Myah and Mildred, which comes to hold such alchemical power that it leaves us emotionally undone, and euphoric...It is all warm and uplifting stuff without being mawkish. I defy anyone to walk out untouched.

For a previous production

Shedding a Skin is a rumination on kindness and healing but above all a celebration of life itself. This night belongs to Wilkin – what an utterly brilliant performance.

For a previous production

[Shedding a Skin] is a shrewd and zingy comedy, which takes a surprisingly tender turn into a tale of a slowly emerging mother-daughter bond between two black women.
