Kind Words Spoken

“…gently disarms you, warms you with its affectionate humour and beguiles you with the mood of shared reverie.” ***** Herald Scotland ***** ”…this already highly successful and award winning show is, as the Nat King Cole song in the show says, Unforgettable.” Irene Brown, The Edinburgh Guide on SWIMMING WITH MY MOTHER **** SWIMMING WITH MY MOTHER is a gorgeous duet that induces both tears and laughter…….A swimming teacher her whole life, Madge also loves dancing and Bolger’s choreography perfectly brings the two together. Kelly Apter, The Scotsman **** The dynamics of the mother-son relationship are not just an end in themselves but open up a meditation on what it means to pass on a skill you love, or a joy in movement. A gentle, joyful, intergenerational gem. Lizzie Steward, The Shimmy Skinny The companionship of mother and son seeped onto the stage in David Bolger’s wonderfully gentle, perfectly formed duet…..
