“Best piece of theatre I've seen all year!"
“IT WAS FIRE!!”
"The writing, the acting, the direction, the music the synchronisation!!"
Tamagotchis, Pokémon and
“a time where laughter was free and nonsense was all we knew”
It’s when you couldn’t be on the phone and the internet at the same time
It’s where you learned insults were a love language
It’s when spittin battles at lunch time could get you happy slapped
Theatre. Dance. Lyricism & school daze nostalgia!
