"Stories of love and lust are presented by six spirited actors, in combinations that defy conventions of society and of the theatre. Roles are taken on by different performers, who swap their parts throughout the production, resisting our desire to lock people into types and categories, intentionally elusive to achieve a broader sense of universality in how it addresses the audience. Heteronormativity too is dismantled, not only in terms of the gay-straight binary, but also in its challenge of monogamy’s dominion, by allowing the ensemble to interact in combinations that exceed the ordinary romantic pair. Director Liz Arday demonstrates intellectual verve, whilst keeping us sensorily engaged with her fast, inventive show. The cast is excellent in collaborative scenes, delightful with their execution of some very fascinating choreography." - Suzy Goes See
"At its best when director Liz Arday has the cast circle and mirror, as life and relationships swirl and break and others get the fallout: this isn’t a bouncy idealism of “put a ring on it” or defiance of TaySwift: more like David Bowie’s breezy song “Modern Love”... this play hits all the right notes and emotions itself."- Chuck Moore
