A great, strong cast, who worked well together. Completely engaging, I was drawn into their world and felt conflicted by the characters morally dubious choices. A great script and for the most part very well directed in a tricky venue. It deserves a much wider audience and I hope it gets seen far and wide.... full review

Fantastically well written and acted, compact and cozy in use of space, time and story. It drops you into an unfamiliar world yet within minutes you feel so comfortable with these characters and who they are that a short-hand or a simple gesture conveys just as much information as a long-winded exposition. The beer might've helped with that too.... full review

What a fantastic show, continues the long tradition of great plays like Who's Afraid of Virgin Woolf, August: Osage County, Disgrace etc. where a group gets together starts drinking too much and a shit storm of secrets ensues.... full review

History and myth collide in this darkly funny yet deeply heartfelt story that takes place during The Troubles in 1970s Ireland. Do not miss this show!... full review

Loved it! This is one of the few shows at Fringe that can stand alone as a proper addition to and established theater's season. And hopefully it will have a life beyond Fringe as such. Tremendous effort from a debuting playwright and director. Go see it and enjoy the DRAMA!!!... full review
