“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

“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.”
