We are madly excited to be bringing Willie and Linda and their kitchen full of empty toolboxes on the road and we really really hope you will come along, bring a friend and spread the word. In case you need convincing here is what the press had to say:
Smart, effective and authentic… an audience would want to have hearts of stone to not be touched by a story that strikes home, in more ways than one.” The Irish Times
“an almost wondrous piece of theatre… beautiful and imaginative” The Irish Independent
“A moving reflection on working-class identity, family relations, the marginalization of skilled labourers and tradesmen, and the collapse of the Celtic Tiger as intimately refracted through the marriage of two people” ★★★★ Exeunt Magazine
“Stark, uncompromising and authentic” worldirish.com
“Dunne possesses an endearing sincerity and Larkin has a presence and honesty few young actresses can match” ★★★★ entertainment.ie
“Thought-provoking, entertaining. Amusing, poignant and ambitious.” thejournal.ie
“a story told with impassioned honesty and straightforwardness…” Irish Theatre Magazine
