⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
This was incredible! Quick witted and deeply moving. Characters are very believable and the show takes a surprising turn that will leave you thinking. The best lighting design I've seen at the Fringe. I'm so glad I saw the flyer!

Started late and over-ran so we missed our next show. Wish we had skipped this one, disappointing.

Culture Fix (4/5 stars) about 20 hours ago

The MP, Aunt Mandy and Me sheds light on the hard-hitting theme of abuse in an impressively-pitched human manner. Blending comedy and an emotional conviction allows this production to shine as a vital yet endlessly engaging piece of theatre.
