We disembarked the theatre, stunned and emotionally wrung dry, our brains still searching for their sea legs.

Production dates

Original Run: 17th – 19th June 2022, at The Dream Factory

Toby and Emily Quash, as the writer and director respectively, have done yet another amazing job in melding the various elements of performance together. They understand the dynamics of their material and the resources at their command and how to turn them into something magical, better than just about anyone in theatre in this, or I’ll bet, any other region. […] If I have a complaint, it is that the show was on for only a short run, June 17 to 19. So I’ll just urge the company to consider restaging it at some time. Because it really is something rather special. Nick Le Mesurier, Leamington Courier
