“…part elergy for a slower way of life, part celebration of epistolatary fun – the intimacy & authenticity of Kilter’s performance make for an evening that may cause you to rethink how you connect with others.” Lynne Locker, Events, Bath & North East Somerset Council


“ inventive, funny, visual engaging, well constructed, intimate, quirky yet accessible for all. Full of surprises and surprising characters.” Kate Cross, the egg, Bath


“an enchanting and beautifully crafted show which celebrates and reminds us of the dying art of letter writing.” Fiona Fraser-Smith, Producer, Beaford Arts


“...utterly charming…. this piece is tender and funny, a wistful paean to more slower forms of communication and the importance of making connections. A joy not just because of the nuanced performances, perfect pacing and utter gloriousness of the set, but also because the intimacy of the performance space matches your connection with the characters and their story.” Belinda Dillon, Exeunt Magazine.
