"Director Luke Sheppard has teased wonderfully subtle performances from his entire cast, inviting us to laugh at the antics of Fierstein's characters, yet never losing sight of their humanity or sympathy for the challenges they encounter."
Jo Caird, Whats On Stage

"a smart, superbly funny take on queer politics"
David Clack, Time Out

"alternately witty and gritty, warm-hearted and tough... Luke Sheppard’s loving, detailed production cleverly avoids caricature to capture the comfort as well as battles (both internal and with each other) they are facing and fighting, and is played with a proud determination by a fine ensemble cast"
Mark Shenton, The Stage
