I AM BEAST

Broadway Baby

* * * * * 

“It's like nothing I’ve seen before, and paves the way for a new style of presenting such relevant, important issues, through a visceral, dynamic, awe-inspiring production.”

The Stage

"I am Beast has a strong visual identity, using puppetry and Tron-like neon visuals to create a comic book landscape, an antidote to the white world of grief." 

Buxton Review

“An outstanding piece of theatre from start to finish. Raw and dark... this a show that everyone should see.”

Total Theatre

“A powerful, compelling piece. Young adult audience members will immediately be drawn into this world and those of us who are older will remember the intense and sometimes desperate inner world of adolescence”

Finge Guru

"A dazzling theatrical spectacle... the visual style is beautifully realised. A first class theatrical experience. A triumph"

Public Reviews

“Darkly moving... a powerful piece of theatre that explores our reaction to loss.” 

The Skinny

“A genuinely moving and captivating depiction of a young girl's grief... a rich imaginary landscape.”

The Girl With No Heart

Student Journal

* * * * *

“Louisa Ashton's script is superb... I have rarely felt as overwhelmed by emotion because of the sheer beauty of a play and I could tell I was not only the one."

The Independent

"This is a spare and stylish show... not so much a puppet show as a puppet masterclass. Sparkle and Dark's storytelling has class and power."

Edfringe Review

* * * * *

"This new writing was powerful... A masterful production of a difficult subject. Something that should be seen and never forgotten.”

Edinburgh Guide

* * * * 

"You don’t so much watch The Girl With No Heart as immerse yourself in it.  The dream-like quality of the experience sucks you into an entire new reality, which you observe and investigate with complete belief despite its fantastical nature.   A gem of a show!"

Broadway Baby

* * * * 

"The Girl With No Heart' achieves that which few stories do; layers of meaning and a universal appeal. Ethereally beautiful puppetry. Educational, innocent & gorgeous - a must see."

Public Reviews

* * * * *

"Both moving and inspiring, this is a production that should be recommended to everyone and is certainly not to be missed."
