Other Highlights

Dead funny…a mix of psychic darkness and beguiling buffoonery. – CUE 2007
A hot new ticket. – Adrienne Sichel, The Star Tonight 2007
Daniel Buckland and Taryn Bennett deliver crafted performances that will have you laughing one moment and sweating-it-out the next. – CUE 2007
Daniel Buckland’s performance is brilliant …while Bennett is just as versatile…it really is one which shouldn’t be missed. – Leon Muston, THE HERALD 2007 (Pick of the Fringe)
Dr Collinger’s Funeral Service is deeply touching. Much of its poignancy comes from the drama’s theatrical inventiveness, which has berserk props taking on emotional significance and becoming (deadly) serious. – Gillian Rennie, Cue Editor, CUE 2007
