Ever wondered what little things other people worry about? The sort of thoughts that buzz around our heads but don’t feel big enough to voice? Maybe yours aren’t so different from everyone else's. Inspired by anonymous submissions, Sweating the Small Stuff is a light-hearted but thought-provoking, collaborative play that explores some of the strange and funny stuff people sweat about on a daily basis. Here, nothing is too small to sweat.

Absolutely loved it, what a revelation. As someone who often sweats very small stuff this was a joy to come too. A show that makes anyone and hopefully everyone feel seen and understood. 10/10 would see again. You absolute gems

An excellent exploration of relevant topics that served to both enlighten and entertain its audience. Equal parts funny and informative, Sweating the Small Stuff really left you thinking about a lot more than when you went in. I would highly recommend going to see the show.

Wow! Incredible performance from the actors. Deeply thought provoking themes at work in this play. Touching on the difficulties and self-conflict involved in growing up, the director and writer Annabel Lunney has undoubtedly laid a solid foundation for her future with this performance. In her rigorous and bold, yet humorous analysis of the aforementioned themes, Lunney cements her position as an artful force in the thespian art, okay!

Wow! what a show. I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in theatrical production because for me this is one my favourites & i’ve seen them all. Just booked a second viewing for tomorrow because one viewing is simply not enough to unpack this masterpiece. 10/10

A delightful, insightful, mightful, show. Incredible.
I can only recommend this inspiring, thoughtful piece. Keep your eyes out for this writer/director, she is going places.

Five fine young actors working hard with poor material. The dialogue very much relates to the problems associated with growing up, not putting the world to right but dealing with everyday smaller issues, as the title suggests. Many relate to relationships, finding partners, sex and appearance. Unfortunately it does’t try and resolve any, with no thought provoking ideas or humour, it comes across as just a long list of twenty something problems. Overall it is a young version of grumpy old men without the wit.
