“Cameron Lukey’s script serves both groups well: what is a poignant trip down sad memory lane for some may be an eye-opener for others… This show deserves and rewards your support” DJ Pearce, Theatre People

“A powerful addition to the cannon of good Australian works” Judith Greenaway, Sydney Arts Guide
