A round of applause for The Sundaes.
This spectacular cluster of dance pieces not only astounded through the sheer physicality of their presentation, but to produce piece after piece of originally choreographed narrat…
To start with the positives, this was a very enthusiastic show.
This is an exceptionally clever
It is with a plethora of “well”s with which this show must be described: well written, well performed, well timed and very well done.
This show started beautifully and retained its magic right until the very end.
This is certainly not a light hearted show.
What an incredible performance.
For a topic that has become slightly worn in recent years and can easily slip into cliché, this was a very commendable take, using the extremely difficult device of verbatim perfo…

I had slightly misled myself in preparation for this show.
This was by far one of the most outstandingly bizarre pieces of theatre I have ever seen; I am still not entirely sure what I actually witnessed, but I know that I liked it.
Don’t let the title put you off.
At least the actors learned their lines well (which you kind of expect from an actor), so this isn’t really much of a compliment but it’s always good to start on a positive.
