Reviews – God of Carnage

“God of Carnage, The Publican’s Men and Viva’s new drama festival entry. Terrific play and fabulous cast directed by Sarah Dowd.

Rob Barton, Kerry Hibbert, Rowan Maulder and Jenny Tayler-Surridge absolutely slay it (and the hamster, not really, no animals were harmed) only emotions.”

“I have been reviewing for GODA for many years and this is the best production I have seen in that time”

Reviews – Departure Lounge

**** (Four Stars) from Edinburgh Guide for Departure Lounge:

“The performances of all the cast are really excellent and the show is full of life!”

“With highly appropriate Spanish-flavoured guitar music (played by Jazz Bullen) and excellent singing of angst-filled songs, these characters eventually revealed their true selves and in this short space of time grew up. What a fantastic evening!”

Get your theatre hats on because you’re in for a wild ride.

Thursday 19 April and Saturday 21 April only.
