Critic reviews

Tatty Hennessy has very creatively taken an already compelling story, and crafted it in to an even more suspenseful tale, with young people and the challenges they face at its heart

Theatre Weekly

I occasionally shivered, but I never quite cared enough

Lyn Gardner for Stagedoor

Layered and perceptive take on the dangers of today's world

Broadway World

Creepy new play based on a true crime story

The Stage

Asks big and exciting questions but ultimately loses momentum and tension

Everything Theatre

Writer Tatty Hennessy has a quick wit and cuts the normal with a comedic edge

A Younger Theatre

As a comedy about girls on the verge of becoming young women there is a lot to like in this play but as something to give the audience chills this is sadly a disappointment
