This is an emotional, heart felt piece of art. You will laugh. You will cry. You will be angry and want to fight for change. A great show for our time. Bringing light to often forgotten about struggles. A reminder that we have come along way but still need to keep fighting for the rights of everyone worldwide.

I enjoyed this so much. Beautifully written and performed. Often very funny. Moving too and a reminder that there is much still to be fought for here and elsewhere in the world. Terry pours his heart and soul into this. It is an emotional rollercoaster that is powerful and important.

This show represents for me what the fringe is all about - discovering that rare gem by pure chance. I normally don't accept flyers but I had just arrived in Edinburgh and the flyerer was so politely persuasive (I thought he was the performer). The first thing that struck me about the show was the exquisite writing. Terry's way with words and delivery didn't need any props- and were sufficient to transport me into his world and carried me along through the twists and turns, the laughs and the tears (I dare you not to well up!) of this heartwarming and heartbreaking love story. This is one of those few unheard stories that I am so grateful Terry has given voice to onstage so well. I would love to see this show have.continued life after the fringe to reach more people. A star! *****

That this show is only a limited run for Fringe isn’t the only tragedy here. I ended up having to buy a second ticket because I missed the first show I bought a ticket for, and I have no regrets about double paying for this intensely beautiful performance. This is a show that lingers, so I urge you to build a bit of time after the show into your schedule so you can truly let it sit with you for a bit after it ends. A masterclass in storytelling.

Bring your tissues, buckle your seatbelts... things are about to get intense. Terry's show is both hilarious and heart-breaking, striking the perfect balance between comedic genius and powerful emotion. The story he presents of modern gay life is compelling, vivid, and raw. Words cannot recommend this show enough- so get yourselves down to the Symposium to witness it yourself!!

Vulnerable, honest, hilarious and crushingly sad. Beautifully told by Terry. A life that totally deserves to be celebrated and a story that should be heard. I was not prepared for the reveal towards the end (tissues required). You’ll leave uplifted and celebrating a beautiful life.

I really enjoyed seeing this show on opening night. Terry's script is a fine example of the writer's craft, leading us through a whirlwind of events. As a performer, Terry's strong, articulate delivery carries his audience along to a powerfully emotional end to the story. Highly recommended!

Theatre Weekly (4/5 stars) 49 days ago

Blink and You’ll Miss It is Terry Geo’s self-written one-man tour de force. Incredibly, Terry managed to cast an epic tragi-romcom of modern gay life from a single chair. He talks warmly and with gentle humour about his failed boyband audition at aged 40, which gives him the shock of a mid-life crisis.
