"Just wanted to say a big thank you from all of us at BGGS for the fantastic production on climate change.The girls thoroughly enjoyed the play, they found it very though provoking and I am sure we will be having some interesting follow up discussions.It was a very topical subject and gave us all some great food for thought on our personal responsibilities in being mindful of climate change."
Colin Jordan, Head of Geography, Bordesley Green Girls' School & Sixth Form

"I really enjoyed the play. I was entertained and felt that it was pitched at the right level. Several pupils said afterwards just how good it was The use language was appropriate. Having a young cast worked very well. And making the play interactive worked well."
Ian Vogel , Head of Geography, Cadbury Sixth Form College

"I thoroughly enjoyed the production. It was cleverly produced in that key messages/statistics on climate change were delivered with accuracy as well as appropriate humour to the age range of our GCSE students. The stage play most definitely promoted interest amongst our students, which was demonstrated by the range of students that answered questions during the play. Students enjoyed the play and displayed a range of emotions throughout such as amusement and inspiration. Students are now able to recall ways that humans have contributed to climate change as well as outlining different methods which could be implemented to manage the impacts of climate change locally, regionally, nationally and globally. ."
Sophie Dunningham, Geography teacher at Sandwell Academy

"I did enjoy the play, I was engaged by the actors performance skill and how the piece had been put together. It was great to see minimal props and setting as many schools do not have access to large scenery and this showed it can be done successfully and to a high standard without this. They gained a lot of knowledge about Climate change and enjoyed watching how the performers displayed this in Drama."
Emily King, Drama Teacher at Hillcrest School

"Drama as it's most powerful – a compelling play"
Shattered loyalties, Birmingham Evening Mail

"The Lonely bridge Song" takes us to a place where there is No tranquility, only dark days and even darker nights.. Lonely souls numbed by fear isolation. This is the place the homeless dwell
The Lonely Bridge, The Metro

“Louise, according to the blurb, "lives for jazz". An excellent singer, she uses music as an outlet for her problems, and as the play develops we soon realise the wealth of problems she faces: childhood violence, problems with men, and most importantly with herself, all emerge as Louise's monologue progresses. Interrupted only by occasional songs, backed on the piano by the play's only supporting character, it becomes clear that music is the only outlet she has. (...) A well executed concept, which was just the right length to hold the attention throughout.”
Playing Life, Three Weeks, Rating 4/5

“MTV meets Girl Interrupted in this teen angst filled production (...) This exploration of the forces behind teen suicide holds much relevancy in today's society and certainly forces one to leave with something to think about. Remarkable performances by the young cast (Possibly the best I've seen all festival) certainly managed to keep me engaged and the movement based vignettes were visually intriguing and gave the production an almost music video-like edge. If you get the chance to see it, there's a good chance you'll be able to catch the stars of tomorrow today.”
The Exit, ThreeWeeks, Edinbrugh Fringe Rating 4/5

“This was a powerful and original exercise in Aids awareness which remarkably also offered considerable entertainment”
