Reviews are rolling in!

The reviews are rolling in for our new co-production of Takin' Over the Asylum. We still have a few to come, but the consensus so far is it's a good 'un.

”(a) moving, funny and heart-breakingly pertinent story”

The Herald ★★★★

“funny, moving, relevant…a fantastic piece of old-school theatre”

List ★★★★

“not-to-be-missed…A Scottish ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’"

“great writing, good music, a collection of fabulous characters facing unenviable challenges and a well structured story.”

whatsonstage.com ★★★★

“a grand entertainment that downplays the more serious side of mental illness.”

The Stage

“blurs the line between mentally ill…and “sane”...to show that despite the labels given to us, ultimately we are all people.”

TV Bomb ★★★★★

Don't forget, you can hear the soul-tastic soundtrack on Spotify or add your own requests to our Soul Survivors' playlist.

Building better teams

Today our Learning Department delivered some of their fine team-building training to employees of Howden Technology.

Louise was telling us of their rather extraordinary newspaper tower-building skills and said I should go and have a look.

With a brief of creating a tall, strong, stable and unique structure, I was picturing a table-top effort, perhaps a metre high. You can imagine my surprise when I found this - a 10 foot high fort complete with flag. Trust engineers eh?!

If you would like to book training for your organisation, we offer Team-Building, Presenting Skills, Avoiding Workplace Conflict and more.
