Glammies appraisers

..."An enjoyable evening which flew by as I became engrossed in the performance of this demanding play. Well done, Unknown Theatre."

..."this was a well directed play and the whole cast deserve credit for pulling off a difficult production, seamlessly moulding 3 plays into one continuous piece of drama."

... "A very enjoyable night out. The whole company should be pleased with this production that wasn't easy but was visually stimulating, with lots of pace and movements and some very strong performances. Well done."
