★★★★★  ‘This is a beautiful play – a personal story told with a gentle touch. Director Lily McLeish has created an intricate and nuanced production, which embraces the details of Tamara Von Werthern’s heartfelt script. A physical ensemble piece, the elaborate synchronicity in the movement serves the story well giving a sense of scope and spectacle to an otherwise intimate story’  The Spy In The Stalls

★★★★ ‘This is the most human and probably most convincing ghost story to be seen on stage for a long time… will stick in the mind long after leaving the venue’  The Upcoming
‘Much stage work has gone into realising this and Isabelle’s journey through movement, special effects, lighting, sound, props and physical theatre, culminating in the harrowing fatal event that ends her life… Just like Isabelle’s ride to work, the journey of the performance is what makes The White Bike so powerful’  Sardines Magazine

★★★★ West End Wilma
