" A true gem...This is, remarkably, the first piece Lindsay and Carruthers have written together. Talent as natural as this shouldn't remain hidden for long."
"Slick...impressive...a gem of the Fringe that perfectly combines the serious with the humorous to provide a glimpse into the hidden moments of daily life. "
“This production is a bit special. It’s touching and funny, it’s beautifully acted and written, it will grab your attention and refuse to let it go. See it while you still can”

The Public Reviews
‘Hidden is something to be very excited about...hilarious and touching...all of the roles played perfectly...fantastically gifted comic actors...we are clearly in the presence of two extremely gifted people...I really cannot fault it...smart, funny, compelling...Hidden could be performed on a motorway and still capture your attention’
Lancashire Evening Post
‘A tight and polished, clear and clever drama...two skilled performers...a wry little gem"
Alison's Adventures in Theatreland
"A gem of a show and very worthy of the capacity audience...The writing is very strong... extremely funny at times, but also incorporating some darker themes and extremely touching moments...It’s quite awe inspiring to see how good actors can transform themselves before your eyes to take on different personas, and it’s done excellently here.
This play worked for me on many levels... it stays with you long after the actors have taken their final bow. Combine that with stonking performances and it made for an excellent night out."
"Hidden promised much and really delivered...recognisable situations made brilliantly funny...the script really is very high quality....A final impressive aspect of the play is that, even at the end, we don’t know exactly what happens with the storylines. We’re left interested about all characters and end the show with hope for some, and uncertainty for others; sometimes, some things should remain hidden from an audience, it can give a piece even more power."
The Fiction Stroker
"A slick and stylish two-hander...Hilariously absurd...Howls of laughter were evident from an audience lapping the chaos up...Edgy, funny and uniquely different...thoroughly enjoyable."
