2015Tanya Chainey and Nicole Rose as the ‘supporters’ were blessed with delivering the short sharp and brutally honest one liners that only a close friend can get away with and did so with pace and confidence, with the audience feeling the difficult positions they found themselves in.

2015This is not a stageplay to be taken lightly, but Tanya Chainey, Stephanie Goodfellow and Alison Nicol rise to the challenge, a rapturous reception laying testament to their creativity, drive and endeavour in bringing this challenging work to the local stage....Powerful, probing and profound.
