Review: Laura Lexx - Trying

Trying is intelligent and disarming, with Lexx a clear and articulate voice with something interesting to say for every minute of her time on stage. Captivating.

Review - Denim: The Reunion Tour

It's an eclectic mix of skits and musical numbers, but the whole is more than the sum of the parts.

Laura Lexx - Trying: Komedia, Brighton review

Trying is a destigmatising emotional journey, interspersed with the recapturing of a particular moment in time; the essence of one family holiday in France in 1994. Above all, it is very funny and engaging.

Jeeves and Wooster in Perfect Nonsense review

I've thoroughly enjoyed Theatre by the Lake's brief residency at the York Theatre Royal. All things considered, it's been a lovely pre-Christmas treat.
