Lovely words about David...
...with a superb supporting cast, including a brilliant David James Kirkwood as the officious director general...it's a fitting tribute to a forward-thinking woman

Sacha Kyle’s production features a series of performances – from Euan Cuthbertson as Syd and Andrew John Tait as Waters, with Ewan Petrie and David James Kirkwood – so impressive that this 55-minute show is a brief but complete immersion in Sixties culture, with its sense of infinite possibility."
(One Thinks of it all as a Dream) Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman.

"the cast are impressive in everything they do, especially the corpsing. Most of all there is magic, lots and lots of magic in a refreshingly audacious caper that weathers any storm that's thrown at it."
(Secret Show 1) Neil Cooper, The Herald
"Turns out, it’s the ideal platform for the Company’s particular brand of home-brewed anarchy, gloriously talented performers and, above all, their extreme appreciation for theatre as entertainment: genuine, side-splitting, worth-missing-telly-for, great night out entertainment."
(Secret Show 1) Christine Irvine, Exeunt Magazine
"And if what is new here is not so much the people as the format, it still carries a real shiver of innovation: a refusal to accept that the fizzing energy of young theatre artists has to be tamed to a style that still alienates so many..."
