It's no wonder that they have won awards around the world. Family-friendly – don't miss this one.

This trio have created an inspiring and unique blend of acrobatics and comedy the will keep you tranfixed on the edge of your seat then leave you with lots to think about after the show. This production is what the Fringe is all about.

I can’t believe there are so few reviews for this brilliant brilliant show! It’s my ‘best of the Fringe’ for this year, so far. And I see a lot.

So talented, and so funny, as well as heartfelt.
This for me is what the Fringe is all about - bringing shows like this to a wider audience.
Do yourselves a favour & GO!

Completely quirky, deceptively home-spun but actually very sophisticated. Three women wind together a feminist narrative while performing acrobatic/circus routines that outclass many of those in the glitzy late-night shows. Lots of laughs, and thrills. Go with it!

I missed this show in 2019, so I am so glad that these ladies (is ladies okay?) have brought the show back for 2022.

A wonderful mix of spoken word and acrobatics. This show is exciting, thoughtful and joyful. A show for all ages by an inspiring multi-generational cast.
