World premiere.

Knockout performances, raw storytelling, an excellent show ****

In Her Corner is a phenomenal peice of theatre. The story is believable from start to finish. The show too is brilliantly directed, especially during scene that took place in the gym, I felt like I was a fly on the wall eavesdropping in every moment of dialogue. But it is the performances that make the play stand out for me. Everyone delivered a knockout performance and do a terrific job of honouring the great script and story.

If there is one show that you are looking to see at the fringe make sure it's this one. Simply brilliant!

A fantastic piece of new writing by the incredibly talented Mikey Burnett, brought to life by a wonderful cast, crew and director. In Her Corner explores themes many young /and older) people will recognise - trying to better yourself no matter how difficult it can be.

Can't recommend it enough.

Intense and well acted story of one girls attempt to escape poverty and gang society. Quick and punchy scenes depict the realities and tragedies faced and the turmoil of the right choice. Cast of 5 actors portray a realistic situation sprinkled with emotional strain, threats, violence and dark humour. Enjoyed play from start to finish.

In Her Corner, Tearin’ The Tartan and New Celts’ production at theSpace on the Mile, has a fresh, visceral quality and genuine drive. If there are a couple of false notes struck, it is nevertheless very impressive. Mikey Burnett’s punchy script details the efforts of Pilton teenager Claire to escape...
