Elsie Diamond: The Sensible Dresser, Edinburgh Review

The MIssion - Review

The Mission is a visually stunning piece of physical theatre devised by its cast. Genuinely moving and powerful, it gives pause for thought about those who take bold steps, or even giant leaps, on our behalf.

Rainbow class is a piece of observational comedic theatre, skilfully and entertainingly delivered. Vivienne Acheampong has shades of Joyce Grenfell as she plays members of the Tiddlesworth Primary school community.
