A special mention should go to Sylvia whose talent really shone. A quick wit and effortless word play highlighted her performance… an astonishing improvised song … Superhuman stuff
— Fringereview (Oxford Imps)
A terrifically talented, skilled and charismatic pair of performers who I could happily watch again and again
— Jules Munns, Director of The Nursery Theatre
The star of the show is Dylan Townley’s music
