“A winning performance from a skilled storyteller.” ★★★★ The Stage
“...an extraordinary piece of work; funny, tragic and poignant, it turns an hour of monologue into an evening of poetic revelation.” ★★★★ Everything Theatre
A mention of this show also popped up in the email I get from Daniel Kitson - an incredibly good storyteller/comedian who was on at the Theatre Royal last winter.
"There is a show on tour at the moment that I saw last year at the Battersea Arts Centre and absolutely bloody loved. It’s by a man called Sean Mahoney and it was one of those things that I was so keen to tell people about. It’s really impressive and funny and moving and fascinating. I really liked it. I had so much time for it in more than a few ways."
