“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.”

Broadway Baby

"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." 

The Stage

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

Buxton Review

“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”

Total Theatre

The Girl With No Heart

“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."

Student Journal

"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."

The Independent

* * * * *

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

Edfringe Review

* * * * 

"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!"

Edinburgh Guide

* * * * 

"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."

Broadway Baby

* * * * *

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