"Extremely well-acted and the unusual writing took me to places I wasn't expecting to go . . eerie, but a vein of bizarre comedy prevents either piece from becoming bleak . . incredibly poetic and brought to life by well-judged changes in lighting . . The writing is incredibly immersive and sensual . . both pieces wrap the audience in their haunting atmosphere."
 Simon Fearn, Broadway Baby

" . . Intense, obsessive, compulsive and disturbing . . The fundamental essence of simple story telling shines out with these two short performances."
 John Kennedy, The Edinburgh Reporter
