"I WAS SO IMPRESSED TO BE IMMEDIATELY AND INSTANTLY ENGAGED WITH THE STORY, AND ALL IT TOOK WAS A SOUND EFFECT AND THE ENTRANCE OF TWO ACTORS WHO KNEW EXACTLY WHERE THEY WERE AND WHAT SITUATION THEY WERE FACING. AND THE STORY'S TWIST HIT ME PHYSICALLY, SLAMMED ME RIGHT IN THE FEELS."
COLIN SMITH / ACTOR
"DEFINITELY A FAVOURITE AT SHORT + SWEET. THE ACTING, DIRECTING AND WRITING ALL WORKED WELL TOGETHER. THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE TWO ACTORS COULD BE FELT BY THE AUDIENCE AND IT WAS TRULY HEARTBREAKING."
EVE CONOMOS / ACTOR
“REMINDED ME A LOT OF HOME."
