Canal St Reviews
Strangers on a Train Set
The performances are excellent, both as the train modellers and the little people they’ve brought to life
No mans land
It’s not a gay play, more a dissection of interactions between non-equals, but that doesn’t preclude the former.
People are happy on trains
one which stayed in the mind for some time after the performance was finished.
