with Kaby’s tight direction beautifully bringing out the light and shade within Withey’s extended monologue-come-duologues; the switches in physicality and vocal energy between Withey’s two characters are utterly seamless.

The direction, also by Kaby is fluid and precise; bringing a great energy to the small stage.

I loved all the exercises and I think there was enough time to really get into them but also feel free to make mistakes and have time to work on them
