We are back in Australia having completed our tour of The Neo Futurists Theatre in Chicago!

We also had some great reviews with TimeOut Chicago saying ‘…Instantly relatable and delightfully unpredictable… Sweet Child of Mine is case-in-point for the transformative power of theatre…’ FOUR STARS

You can read the whole TimeOut review here as well as our reviews in The New City Stage and Chicago Theater Beat

And perhaps my favourite review of all time comes from nine year old Ada Grey who has been reviewing theatre in Chicago since she was four years old! You can read her lovely and insightful review right here
