“Physical and visually arresting. . . Darkly beautiful and disturbingly eerie.” Four Stars
– Edinburgh Festival Insider

“From a stunning beginning to the gorgeous ending, The Grind Show is an attack on the senses, an exploration of humanity and death, where nothing is what it seems . . . fantastically acted . . . An attack on the senses. . . . should not be missed” Four Stars
– Hairline Magazine

“Deliciously unsettling”
– Three Weeks

“A mix of slick physical theatre and naturalistic dialogue, The Grind Show follows a wide-eyed boy through a surreal circus. But when he asks difficult questions the surface begins to crack. Beneath these characters’ demented bravado lie the recognisable pressures and fears of life.” Four Stars
– The List

“Vigorous and promising physical theatre… uses it to maximum effect”
– The Scotsman

“The Grind Show reminded me why I got into acting in the first place. Excellent, world class stuff.”
