"The cleverest concept for a one woman show I've seen. It is smart, funny, self-deprecating, utterly relatable and just the right amount of shocking. If Fleabag did computers, this is what it would look like""Outcast Studios (Alexander Defert), 22nd March 2019
"A special mention should go to Eleanor Colville for her impeccable comic timing and vocal range: her depiction of the deranged boss of the second floor is some of the best comic acting I have ever seen."The Tab, 2019
