  • Liz Cunningham says:

    This was an excellent production – every person in the ensemble was so polished. The comedic timing was really tight and the physical movement – from the point we entered the auditorium – was strong, and clever and got us instantly engaged.The audience laughed out loud time and again during the ‘play’ – there were some super funny lines delivered impeccably. The ‘slow motion fight’ scene was stand out brilliant. Good luck to this young theatre company; one to watch.

  • Anon says:

    Such a well-deserved nomination. Those young people bought so much joy and energy to a very absurd piece of theatre. Bravo!

  • Victoria Jones says:

    We thoroughly enjoyed watching this funny and entertaining absurdist piece. The choreography was impressive throughout and the performers brought a young and exciting energy to the play. Congratulations!

  • Nick says:

    I saw this! Such a wonderful group piece of theatre from such young performers –
    It was so good I went a second time and it was even better! Definitely worth the nomination! A talented group!

  • Freddie Sparke says:

    Wow, what an absolutely jaw-dropping showstopper of a performance. Simply mesmerising from the absurd thematic motifs provided by the fabulous musicians, Annie & Louisa to the satiric and masterful performance of the poet, Luc. And what’s more, this group consists of nine 16 and 17 year olds!
    It was a fantastic show, and well worthy of an Offies nomination.

  • Laura says:

    A well deserved nomination! Well done to all involved.

  • Graham Nurser says:

    Great to know the drama flame still burns bright at Rugby.

  • Nathan Avidan says:

    Spectacular absurdist take on one of my favourite pieces of literature. It is absolutely fantastic to see such talent and dedication from young performers, I wish them all the best in their futures (which will undoubtedly be filled with many more successes).

  • ⠀Will Ko says:

    Ladies and gentlemen, hold onto your sanity because I just witnessed a performance that was so mind-blowingly, earth-shatteringly unique that it left me questioning the very fabric of teenage existence!

    I’ve got to give hats off to the blonde girl with the saxophone. Oh boy, where do I even begin? Blonde locks flowing like a golden waterfall of musical confusion, she expertly wielded her saxophone like a magic wand casting a spell of bewildering notes upon the audience. Truly, a musical prodigy in the making.

    In conclusion, this performance was an avant-garde masterpiece that shattered every convention known to the entertainment industry. It’s as if the director raided a costume shop, handed instruments to random passersby, and yelled, “Go create chaos, my minions!” And that blonde girl with the saxophone? Truly amazing. Bravo! *wild applause*

  • Richard ramirez says:

    Fantastic play, me and my wife thoroughly enjoyed it. I particularly liked how they incorporated music into their absurdist piece- the blonde girl on the saxophone was INCREDIBLE, refreshing to see that sort of talent in young performers.
