I summed it up above... I will repeat, great performances by all three actors. Interesting use of the space, including how flashbacks were handled. The story went from very funny to very serious at times, so basically what I'm saying is that it had ups and downs (ha, ha ha)! ... full review

"Up Down Stick Stuck" is a modern day take on Sartre's "No Exit." The premise is brilliant, a story of three strangers who become forced to interact with each other within the confines of a suspended elevator. Each of the three characters are brought to life with astounding artistry and their portrayers allow us to peer into their psyches. The audience is invited into an intimate setting and learn each of the three's particular grievance. ... full review

Man, it must be tough to take something that's literally in a box and make it interesting but it was well achieved! As they say, I laughed and I cried. The actors were fantastic, very moving performances. Worth squeezing into your fringe schedule!!... full review

Up Down Stuck Stick - the claustrophobia of being stuck in a small space with people you don't know is probably a very intense fear for many people. Up Down Stuck Stick takes this confinements to new heights with playful moves involving bodily fluids to dreams about flying. But the power behind the play is the stories about the people who get stuck in life and how some stay that way whilst others change their positions. ... full review

The collaborative nature of the writing of the piece really paid off, delivering a heartbreaking but satisfying look at the lives of three people you feel like you just might know in real life. Really fantastic character work from everyone involved.... full review

A beautiful, heartbreaking look into what happens when people let their guard down and show how vulnerable we are. At the end, we all just want to be loved - by our partners, by our parents, by each other. It's amazing what this three person cast does with just a stage and a few props but then again, that's what makes Fringe shows incredible, especially this one. ... full review
