"A sense of mission that goes beyond mere entertainment…the immersive aspects of the performance are beguiling and the work bears all the Milk Crate hallmarks: authenticity, honesty, gallows humour, generosity of spirit and a sense of mission that goes beyond mere entertainment."
"The production imaginatively draws together the self-devised scenes into a cohesive whole. The combination of music, video, song and drama complement each other and keep the action moving, and the immersive 360-degree set created by artistic director Margot Politis allows the audience to be voyeurs to the changing scenes and action while not being overwhelmed."
SUZY GOES SEE
"Featuring an extremely engaging cast of performers, including Darlene Proberts, whose delightful singing voice has us hopelessly charmed. Shane Bell delivers a powerful monologue, bringing tears to many eyes with his portrayal of Michael, as he recounts his distant glory days."
SYDNEY ARTS GUIDE
"The cast played, very well, both ‘sides’; some were restless, disgruntled people in the waiting room tackling forms, whilst others played prissy, officious staff. At one point, in a clever twist, we, the audience, went into another room, to be processed as people looking for work/accommodation."
SOUTH SYDNEY HERALD
"Moving, funny, subversive and haunting, the performance not only provides a creative opportunity to those who are experiencing, or have experienced homelessness, but also explores the ways in which society denies the right to pursue a fulfilling life to the indigent."
