5-stars “By turns sinister, provocative and hilarious… Mayenburg’s play feels electric and as sharp as a well-maintained kitchen knife.”The Public Reviews

“if you just fancy a dark comedy to escape the norm, then it’s definitely worth booking a ticket.” A Younger Theatre

(Reviews for ‘The Dog the Night and the Knife’ by Marius von Mayenburg 2014) 

4-stars “Klippies’ is a well-crafted snapshot – a delicate look at burgeoning youth and the burden of history.” Time Out

4-stars “conjuring a sense of aridity, of blasted grass and sleepy, booze-laced and sunwashed afternoons” The Stage

4-stars “a vibrant, incisive 75 minutes… Klippies packs a hit that burns on the way down… all in one finely packaged and impactful bit of theatre.” The Public Reviews

Skin a Cat by Isley Lynn12th October - 5th November 2016 (no mondays)

“the smartest, sharpest piece about female sexual identity since Phoebe Waller Bridge’s Fleabag” – The Stage

Straight from the sold out run at Vault Festival where it was awarded Pick Of The Year, SKIN A CAT is a bracingly candid account of sex and shame, gut-wrenching and side-splitting by turns, this is a truly alternative coming of age story about going all the way.
