“I left the theatre that afternoon with a renewed sense of self-worth, perpetuated even more, by seeing the happy young faces around me believe that they could be whomever they wanted to be, stereotypes be damned.” ★★★★ LGBTQ ARTS


“Audiences will be thoroughly entertained by some top-notch physical comedy, enchanting visuals, and a gifted all-female quartet of actors. Director Chris Yarnell and lighting designer Martha Godfrey cleverly employ the use of hand-cut animations manipulated live on an overhead slide projector. This striking visual element serves as a refreshing reminder of the power of do-it-yourself theatrical magic” - Younger Theatre
