Caught the show on Saturday and it is incredibly good. The songs are catchy and the complex performances are done to pinpoint accuracy.

Definitely catch this as it is going to be worth your time.

Real good work

This punchy attack on the difficult theme of male dominated sexual relationships is undertaken with care, consideration, made more palpable by the interjection of humour and music. Def one show to swallow not spit out - well done guys!

Great show. Fun, energetic, and amazingly relevant to the issues of sexual violence. Sophie rocks. She stands strong in the melee of male characters and anarchic music and humour that want to control her life. And a great moment at the end from the two male characters about their treatment of women.

In your face theatre that is disturbing for the deliberate contrast between subject matter and style of presentation. It works and raises many questions about male behaviour whilst surprisingly entertaining and raising a laugh. A must to see

A very thought-provoking and innovative exploration of a challenging theme, delivered by a skilled and engaging cast - well worth a visit.

When I worked as a journalist I did several interviews with the victims of abuse. So to say I was sceptical about the idea of a comedy musical on the theme would be an understatement. But the leafleted were persuasive. I came to scoff, but came away impressed. This trio - one young lady and two male singers and guitarists - take us on a tour of Sophie’s troubled sex life, and slowly we learn her dark secret. We discover the harm done to young men and women by the normalisation of porn - and how this can destroy relationships. Somehow these three talented folk stop the worthiness ever becoming dull: and the show is all the more effective for that. Your this round schools colleges and youth centres. Take it to womens aid centres. It is excellent.

Great show. Hard hitting and hilarious - really thought provoking and totally not what you expect! Great performers and such annoyingly hummable songs!!!!
