[stars-4] ” She has bags of talent, and the original songs by MissKate, MathMan and Bobofunk are absolute anthems. Even with the heavy material, you’ll be gunning for a dancefloor of your own after” Irish Times [break]
“Kate Stanley Brennan already has an impressive acting CV, and this is her first play. In it, she raises vital issues, most obviously rape culture, and even in its more traumatised moments, it’s relatable and captivating.” Irish Times [break]
