What people have said about previous Works Ahead
…evenings like Works Ahead are vital …both [pieces] harness techniques and raise ideas which are truly compelling.
The State of The Arts (2018 review)
A cathartic, funny and brutally honest show about bodies, particles and the universe.
Afronalysis (2017 review)
Maybe not what you’d regard as traditional ‘theatre’, but compelling nonetheless …make you think that anything could happen in the performance space.
QuietManDave (2016 review)
• Great to see new work by younger artists.
• Brilliant works in progress, varied and interesting.
• I enjoyed both shows even though they were very different. I look forward to seeing how they develop.
