'A gorgeous, light-touch public bar set by Charlotte LaneThe Scotsman

'The set and lighting design... score high on atmosphere and the rustic bar, wooden chairs and tables, earthy-coloured costumes and onstage three piece band ... evokes a ceilidh-like feeling, those traditional Scottish, impromptu, intimate, traditional, storytelling, song and dance sessions. The Public Reviews

'With the narrator's lines split three ways between the bar staff of Charlotte Lane's wood-lined howf, the rest of the townsfolk either prop up the bar or else sit in repose at a floor of tables until they spring into life to lay bare their hearts desires. At one point in what at times looks and sounds like the physical evocation of a saucy seaside postcard, the entire sixteen-strong ensemble get on their feet for the sort of dance routine that only ever fully lets rip in an after-hours lock-in situation.
