“It’s a smart and funny piece of improvisation that portrays perfectly our facility – and our helplessness – as we navigate the modern world, processing vast amounts of material but turning very little of it into sense.” Judith Mackrell. The Guardian.

“…. utterly silly and utterly inspired. And by the way, it said a lot about our culture.” Ismene Brown . The Telegraph.

on In The Dark. Performance Space.
“….sophisticated and multi-layered” Deborah Jones. The Australian.

“….hilarious and ludicrous “ Jill Sykes. Sydney Morning Herald.
