"Grimm Tales meets East Asian mythology in Julie Tsang's Fix and it makes for an intriguing mix... aims for something far more unsettling than simply a neat final twist." - Lyn Gardner, Stagedoor

"Tsang's storytelling and Tan's vision become one and haunt the spectator outside the reach of their show" - Broadway World

 "Ominously atmospheric exploration of guilt's effect on the psyche" - The Stage

Fix is published by Aurora Metro Publications Limited 2020

Julie is a facilitator for Stage to Page, a voluntary collective of writers, directors and actors who meet monthly to conduct short public workshops of scenes from brand new plays.
