"gorgeous, hilarious, thrillingly weird"

★★★★★- The Stage


"a flawless production brimming with talent" "The set, designed by Grace Venning, is minimal, two painted blocks with red undersides that echo the bear heads red eyes. The production is beautifully crafted as a whole"

★★★★★ - The Spy in the Stalls


"Grace Venning’s red and grey design is simple but striking [...] a captivating and compelling shaggy bear story that bristles with playfulness"


 "like i will still be whole it captures the anonymity of London, the emptiness of the bustling city, the hole at its heart without friendship, love and community."
