Published Reviews

"An entertaining production for couples to attend to test their compatibility and tolerance for each other, or go alone and revel in your independence while you hear of lonely souls who need another for completion. Light-hearted... definitely recommended."

Laura Jones, Edinburgh Screenworks (2010)
