2015Entertainingly (and movingly) written, well-acted and cleverly realised ... an excellent night at the theatre.

2015Esk Valley Theatre has chosen a good play and great actors – excellent theatre. Restless Dennis crouches on the sofa, leaps over it and lies on the floor completely unrelaxed – making actor David Smith mesmerising to watch.

2015**** Boldly styled. Boldly acted. Joltingly powerful.

2015quite fantastical, hallucinogenic electrical displays… raw in a way that it needs to be
Mark Kermode

2015There’s a jump and crackle to Electricity…a movie full of visual spark. It’s a gutsy, vibrant film about taking control of life. Fresh and free of cliche.
