Richard Stamp, 'Fringe Guru' *****

"Lindsay Miller's tour-de-force script poses constant questions, from its disorientating opening right through to its disturbing finale. It's thought-provoking and entertaining, combining sharp observation with plenty of wit. Fight it all you like, but you'll find yourself drawn in...waiting for that final twist, for another sting in the tail."

Drew McAdam, 'Edinburgh Evening News' ****

"Cleverly written and perfectly delivered by a cast with more talent that is reasonable, this is a remarkable production. The story and the characters demand your attention from the outset, then take you into a dark place that is brutally shocking, yet unbelievably entertaining."

Joyce McMillan, 'The Scotsman' ***
June 2012 

"Over a fierce 70 minutes, Miller's intensely theatrical script gradually rises to a fever pitch of shrieking paranoia and competing voices… Miller's play is more disturbing than thrilling, and often painfully accurate in reflecting the torment of extreme mental breakdown."
