Early Reviews.

"It made me laugh out loud. And on occasion, shed a tear."  John Slater.

"Hennegan writes brilliantly and vividly about the people he encounters. A stream of consciousness that is sometimes painfully honest and often hillaious"  Caroline Moore.

"A hillarious, observed must-read if you are thinking of starting a theatre company. Or maybe you shouldn't read it!" Peter Willis.
