“A wonderful performance. It had me in tears it was so beautiful.”

“The issues associated with dementia were very creatively and imaginatively explored.”

“The idea of creating a web of thread across the stage was a brilliant evocation into the diminishing mental faculty of persons with dementia.”

“As a carer who can feel isolated at times, I think you for what you're doing to bridge different experiences through your dynamic theatrical forms.”

“The production was remarkable in its concept and execution and so stimulating.”
