Reviews for Twa at the Traverse in May 2019

Links to some lovely reviews for the show:

“…the pair join forces to reclaim their stories in a way that gives them power and strength enough to transform personal rites of passage into something greater…a brooding collage of absorbed wisdom across the ages.” The Herald

“George is a persuasive storyteller, combining diffidence with a calm authority. She engages without seeming to do very much, just telling her tales, drawing us in…TWA is undoubtedly unusual: an ambitious, intelligent production that exerts a strange hold over its audience.” Bouquets and Brickbats

“George’s script and performance are impressively strong, emotional, and not without moments of levity among heavy themes…This is a promising, unique, and truly artistic performance from two clearly creative female minds that tells an important story about abuse. George and Gardner are truly two artists to follow.” Young Perspective

“a testimony to the creativity, strength and resilience of every woman. It’s abstract and thought-provoking at points with several unexpected moments. It’s liberating as a piece of storytelling work and achieves its aim of fighting back against silence and expressing that which cannot be said.” The Skinny
