…..rumour has it there’ll be a kissing booth!
“It’s hard to believe – as these actors take their thoroughly deserved curtain call – that there are only three of them. Each has painted a brace of portraits vivid in their authenticity, raw in their seemingly futile grasp on hope and glued to the life-affirming need we all have to dream. Parr, Creff and Faatoia have created work that is bereft of victimhood, rich in dignity and courage while at the same time denying us nothing of the horror of life on the street. It’s pragmatic and wonderful and I loved – and admired – every minute of it.” (dykiegirl.wordpress.com)
