“Frenzied, subversive, anti-theatre explosion of energy that hits you hard. Kinda like you’d dropped a repeater fireworks box over an open flame then looked down to see what would happen.”
J. Daniel – The Music
“playful, thoughtful, scattered, indulgent and gloriously obnoxious…
conviction in every moment…absolutely irresistible.
Theatre lives at MKA..”
B. Neutze – Crikey
“You can’t possibly imagine what this show is.. Hypnotic and entertaining as hell. You could play laugh bingo- the audience gave every kind of laugh there is.. You won’t be forgetting this.”
J. Miles – YAWP Mag
“Thank You, Thank You Love is extraordinary… it’s a chaos that’s alive… brute force and an overpowering energetic drive; beautifully profound moments and evocative language.”
J.Jackson – AussieTheatre
“messy, kooky and embracing – funny and fun… An orgy of chaos… disarming and highly enjoyable.”
S. Sandow – Stage Whispers
