Nominated as Best Solo Show in The Stage Awards for Acting Excellence.
“Like Creature Comforts with more sex and less plasticine.” Alan Davies
“Performance comedy of the highest order in this hour of aural voyeurism from Lizzie Roper, seamlessly possessed by characters stained by their sexual experiences.” The Herald – 5 stars
“Enjoying a stream of hysterical and sometimes downright smutty dialogue, the audience also got Roper's signature rubbery facial contortions, and her excellent ear for accents into the bargain.” Edinburgh Evening News – 5 stars
"A lightning-fast piece of comic ventriloquism. It's a hard thing to pull off both pathos and belly laughs, but Roper more than succeeds." The Times
