The House Never Wins

'[one of] a few companies [who] make strong cases for theatre in its digital form'

'A game, an allegory, a screed and an exercise in behavioural economics.... your group may ultimately play for a cash prize, but ours managed to destroy the casino (the planet?) well before the final round' New York Times

'a stroke of genius... riveting and not to be missed'

'Far more than alternative lockdown entertainment, The House Never Wins paves the way for an exciting new wave of immersive theatre' ★★★★ London Theatre Reviews

'really imaginative and ambitious'

'the best interactive/online virtual experience I’ve seen since lockdown' ★★★★ Within Her Words

 ‘uniquely planed and fantastically executed…weaves the audience along a deeply engaging path of darkly witty commentary, facilitation and game-play. It proves a perfect experience for all those currently feeling starved of innovative, exciting new fringe work' ★★★★ The Okay-ish Blog

'Kill The Cat has embraced all kinds of technology in this live show, proving that immersive theatre has a future on digital platforms' ★★★★ The Reviews Hub 

'Think of a night in Vegas meets climate crisis awareness meets the prisoner’s dilemma. All on Zoom. With a stream of messages overloading your WhatsApp. If this doesn’t feel like your ideal night “out,” your loss (quite literally).

' originally conceived for a live audience but the porting to the digital realm feels fresh and inspired.' Top 5 shows of Electric Dreams Festival by Submarine Channel 

'The House Never Wins gave us, the participants, an invitation to learn more about the long term crises that our planet faces by giving us a new set of reference points to see them through. It showed us comprehensively that change is very much possible, and that the chips needed to save us all must be played very soon. I simply hope more people find their way to their table in time.' Exeunt

'Imaginative, engaging, unnerving, wrong footing and ultimately worrying. You are left questioning your own behaviour and that of the other audience members' The PRSD

'The various ways of playing the game give the audience a joyous sense of freedom that is rare in any theatre' Theatre Weekly

'The format is simple. The underlying message resounding. It’s delivery fascinating' Everything Theatre

  

A Pint Sized Conversation
 
'Powerful and enlightening'- Sarah Knight, Rethink Mental Illness

'A Pint Sized Conversation is such a multi-faceted, ingenious piece of theatre, it is difficult to know where the accolades begin...
It’s one of the most informative, effective and inventive pieces of theatre I’ve ever seen' - ★★★★★  London Theatre 1

​'Stories are told with clear emotion, with a sense of absolute honesty; it feels less like theatre and more like a protest, a prayer or a confession. There is absolutely no artistic gloss at these points, and it is blisteringly painful to hear and to recognise the ubiquity of suffering in this particular field.  It is totally human, and raw, and urgently, desperately necessary.'
'...one of the most uplifting and touching moments of theatre I have seen in a long time' -★★★★★ Upper Circle

'Dylan Frankland's story about his sister is particularly heartfelt, and his conflicting feelings of frustration and guilt – even with regards to telling the story in such a public forum – struck a real chord' ★★★★ Mind The Blog

'Unfiltered, raw and emotionally charged.'
'The subject matter may appear dense for some and suggests a dark and dreary work would follow. However A Pint Sized Conversation is absolutely not that. It is witty, clever, anecdotal and real, not to mention enthusiastically uplifting'. ★★★★ 
Ask The Ushers

'Innovative and highly effective'
'In just one hour, Pub Talks covers the many facets of mental health without leaving the audience feeling rushed off their feet. It is an impressive achievement -★★★★ Razz Mag

'Curtains are pulled open and walls dissolved as we’re invited... to share in a very real experience. Nothing is filtered out, even the stuff that’s hard to talk about. Every one of the ensemble articulates themselves wonderfully'
'Honest and engaging' -Exeunt

'Angry but uplifting; powerless but empowering, sad, but ultimately upbeat; defiant'
'Open, emotional and honest'
 'If this were a real pub, you could well find yourself buying them a drink, but you wouldn’t leave.’- The PRSD

'Engaging and visually fascinating...The small ensemble work beautifully together and deliver very personal and varied individual performances'
'The writing is compelling and assured, with many poetic moments, very clever observations... and perceptive humour'
'you’re bound to leave feeling uplifted, entertained and enlightened' -The Peg

 


The Beginner’s Guide To Navigation
 
‘a madcap and very witty romp... It’s great.’
‘It’s about not letting yourself grow into some middle-aged, apathetic, boring, old twat.’ -Exeunt
 
‘Fun-filled and thought-provoking, smile raising and chuckle churning... a new niche between satire and the absurd' 
'could well start a new movement in theatre' -The PRSD

‘Ambitious and creative… relentlessly entertaining'
‘The political message is unusual. Rather than inciting dismay at the injustices of the world, The Beginner’s Guide exposes the apathy which plagues Western society… [reminding] us that in order for change to happen one must commit wholeheartedly to the cause.' - Razz Mag
