    Press Review 4Laura Thompson, Telegraph, Wednesday 24 June 2015Performance 20 - 28 June 2015

    Press Review 4Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Wednesday 24 June 2015Performance 20 - 28 June 2015

  10. Project O - Swagga - The Yard

    Press Review 3Luke Jennings, Observer, Tuesday 23 June 2015Performance 16 - 20 June 2015

    As political provocation, Swagga scores, but as theatre it could use a tighter focus. For all the you-go-girl affirmation, Cooper and Hyatt remain enigmatic figures. I’d have liked to get to know them better.
