Great staging, Great acting, Entertaining, Delightful, Absorbing

See it if you like a love story told from various ages and points of view.This show is touching and meaningful.

Don't see it if you are a homophobe.Watching these men fall in love and stay in love is incredibly moving.Staging/casting is excellent.

Great acting, Thought-provoking, Claustrophobic, Wistful, Nostalgic

See it if You like a rich, nostalgic look at gay life. Well acted with a focus on voice and evocative language.

Don't see it if Static staging and unenrnful and interior facing drama. Requires a focussed and attentive audience.

"At its heart, 'Something In The Air' is a love letter to London, life and love itself...While it may not be completely perfect, it is still a highly enjoyable show and one that left me wanting more."

"Gill is a fine writer who has made a significant contribution to the modern British stage. But here, it feels his message, however poignant, has been drowned out by the sheer weight of words."

"Gill and Alice Hamilton co-direct... six fine actors perform an exquisite chamber symphony. Barely moving, they trace an intricate weave of dialogue around dense pools of recall."

" 'Candida" can be a bit of a slog to sit through, even at only 100 minutes. This production might best have kept its cockney accents intact and trusted this same talented cast to land the jokes on British soil."
