#RustThePlay @_HighTide_ is a quiet provocation on the nature of desire and love, forcing you to examine your moral compass. Directed with razor-sharp precision by @elrhode it proves that love is indeed a stranger.

★★★★ “Intimate and intricate” The Sunday Times
★★★★ “Lams is wholly captivating” Broadway World
★★★★ “beautifully written” The Spy In The Stalls
★★★★ “Breffni Holahan gives a searing performance as Essie…Perry’s writing is sharp” The Guardian
“Holahan is heart-breaking, the writing flinty and rich” Stagedoor, Lyn Gardner
Also saw the wonderful circus piece Knot @AssemblyRoxy very layered and beautifully crafted. Collapsible @assemblyroxy has a beckettian edge as a woman doubts her own existence. Nice work. Superstar @FollowTheCow is light, bright tale of escaping the shadow of your siblings

★★★★ “Breffni Holahan is mesmeric as Essie…Perry writes with clarity and insight about mental unravelling but, like Holahan, she achieves a wonderful balancing act.” The Stage
There will be a full review of Collapsible along in due course but Breffni Holahan has driven me to break out the emojis ?❤️?

Just saw #PinkLemonade @AssemblyRoxy How brilliant! Go see for creative visceral storytelling with a strong narrative w/poetic lyrical content. Never seen @MikaJ_artist ‘s work before, but already can’t wait for what they do next! So talented! #edfringe my top picks.

SINCE U BEEN GONE
“Lamb’s humble delivery naturally invites empathy and receives it from the audience in spades” Miro Magazine
“Billy Barrett’s sensitive direction creates strong visual images and teases out the layers of emotion in Lamb’s rich script” Exeunt Magazine
“Lamb is a charming and charismatic performer with an expansive heart and resonant generosity” The Plays The Thing
“Lamb is an upbeat and down-to-earth performer” Whats On Stage
I absolutely adored Since U Been Gone by @TheTeddyLamb @OutSpokenLDN and @_HighTide_ this afternoon. Such heartwarming queer positivity, it filled me with bittersweet tears. #edfringe #MakeYourFringe pic.twitter.com/q1pRietXM2

Since U Been Gone by @TheTeddyLamb / @thequeerhouse is a tender exploration of grief, pronouns and learning to continue living when our loved ones pass away. It’s quietly devastating. #edfringe pic.twitter.com/HLfdsELpBh

Saw @TheTeddyLamb‘s show today and it was the first this year to move me to actual tears. Such a beautifully constructed, wholesome, heartbreaking and yet uplifting piece, don’t miss it!
