" 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."

"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."

"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."
