SELECTION OF PREVIOUS REVIEWS:

…it’s a credit to Fiona Walton’s assured direction and the confidence of her excellent ensemble cast that the production succeeds in creating not just the growing tension and spiralling disintegration of Joe Orton and Halliwell’s relationship, but that it vividly paints a picture of the outside world and the events that shaped the impending tragedy.. Snappy, no-fuss but with honest conviction and a lot of heart. ***** The Scotsman (Diary of a Somebody)

…Wit, originality and flair hold sway in this gripping production..immensely vibrant and high quality ensemble production. **** The Guardian (Diary of a Somebody)

…Tackled with passion and superb comic timing. The crude black humour shines through and makes you squirm in your seats. **** The Guardian
(Kvetch)

…Compelling and moving, …stunning, thought-provoking production.*****The List (Blueblade)
