"A visionary piece of genre-fusing theatre that defies sentimentality." The Stage ****

"Searingly honest yet brutally funny" To Do List ****

"She [Beth Vyse] makes a good fist of putting silliness into the story while being respectful to a sensitive issue that affects so many others... Holding all this together is quite the task, and Vyse has the verve, charisma and honesty when it’s needed to get the job done." Chortle

"She [Beth] is an enormously likeable character with an important tale to tell." Veronica Lee for The Arts Desk
