The meteorite shook the ground as it landed, igniting a chorus of barking dogs. It felt as though the house trembled. Voices, soft and low, linger in corners; each a note in the composition of a home. The scrape of a chair, the distant hum of family dinners, laughter, a symphony of footfall on stairs. The kitchen tiles hold us while we dance, the house sings, outside the world fades. Gathered around a doll's house, Fringe First-winning storyteller Casey Jay Andrews weaves a delicate fable about sanctuary, belonging and loneliness.

Casey Jay Andrews is magnificent and this piece of theatre is magnificent. A tiny studio theatre can sometimes produce the most moving and profound "shows". If I had seen all 3,535 different productions being shown this year at the Fringe, I do not believe any could have bettered this extraordinary storytelling experience. If any seats are left, book now!

Phenomenal storytelling, and so poetic. Such is the wizardry and ability of our storyteller Casey Jay Andrews - such disparate elements are woven into a narrative of such silken beauty, of angel's breath consistency. Enthralling. Compelling.

Casey Jay Andrews is always one of the first performers that goes on the list of Fringe shows! Oh My Heart, Oh My Home did not disappoint - the threads of Howard and his grand-daughter's visit, meteors and trees inter-linked in Casey's skillful narrative and easy style. Her use of models to illustrate a story goes much remembered, and the dolls house sitting centre stage did not disappoint. The use of live music and the contribution of the musician (apologies for forgetting the name) were an added and welcome bonus.

May you continue to pack them in. See you next year?

Home, family and meteorites, all in one simple story that oozes beauty, tenderness and warmth
If you are seeing only three shows in the fringe this year, this should be one of them, 5 stars

In recent years seeing Casey’s latest show has been one of the highlights of my Fringe and this year’s show doesn’t disappoint. The enormity of space, eternity of love, memories of home and a sense of wonder all brought together in a lyrical (and at times educational) fable with a doll’s house for a set. Sound, lighting, music (performed live by Jack Brett), found film and animation all help set the scene but it’s Casey’s wonderful storytelling ability that draws you in and tugs at the heartstrings. Absolutely wonderful.

A haunting reminder of the importance of wonder, the fragility of life and the importance of only worrying about the things you are in control of.
