The selection of work was so well shaped and engaging, the actors were all first class and worked seamlessly as an ensemble and the production was constantly interesting and imaginative. Altogether, it was delightful entertainment – touching and amusing and intriguing. My sense of it was that the audience was enchanted.”

“I found the whole Being Human poetry in performance show utterly mesmerising. I laughed and cried and experienced the poems in a new and profound way, as my own life and feelings were mirrored back in the actors’ fine and subtle performances. I found the haunting music and black and white visuals accompanying the show particularly beautiful  A really fabulous production.”
Roz Goddard, Cradley Heath, West Midlands

“It is a truly inspiring piece, and the melding together of poetry and theatre is sublime. I haven’t been so enthralled, captivated and moved by either poetry or theatre for a long time. It seems to me to break new ground, and be a way forward. Many, many congratulations.”
David Calcutt, Walsall

“It’s a rare treat to enjoy a night of live poetry that actually changes the way you think about poetry itself, but Friday night did exactly that for me. From the performers to the props, themes and the music, I thought it was perfectly balanced and yet also kept plenty of surprises back that made the poems funny, emotive and memorable just as they should be.”
Jane Commane, Rugby

“This is pioneering work taken well beyond beta testing. An anthology that hadn’t jumped up on my radar becomes an amazing theatrical experience here.”
