co-directed with hugo aguirre

company: juliet turnbull, alfie noble, aine nettleton, sarah hopkins and andrew bourne

★★★★★ broadwayworld

Lizzie Manwaring and Hugo Aguirre, who have teamed up to co-direct, have cleverly crafted this show with many ingenious moments throughout. The pair has given a lot of freedom to the performers, placing trust in their ability to deliver. It certainly pays off. This coming of age drama is eclectic and kooky. You never know what is going to be said or done next and this anticipation really does keep the audience on the edge of their seats.”
