"Engaging and very human stories"

"Nadia Shash is highly watchable as Janet, who seems to respond instinctively to the dramatic twists and turns of her character, and David McCelland is excellent as the persecuted priest."

"Mazzilli’s intense, poetic language flits between themes of sex and incest, imperialism and terrorism, compassion and retribution. It challenges and touches the audience, and despite striving to be a little too intellectually abstract at times, manages to engage from beginning to end.""If you want to see theatre that breaks away from the bog-standard commercial norm this is the show to see."

"Mary Mazzilli’s The Wrong Sleep refuses to sit on the fence, nor does it wait on the sidelines."

"Mazzilli’s writing is poetic, strange and enlightening. The language very much in the style of Martin Crimp, giving the audience the reins in determining what is happening to the characters. Mazzilli’s style of theatre is excellent for a discerning, inquisitive audience member who enjoys a challenge. There is definite potential for this show to succeed in a longer run."

"Sibéal McGuinne gives a very poetic and touching performance as Vivian. Vivian’s scenes with Gloria (an impressive Suni La) are both tender and disturbing...the writing is of extremely high quality"

"Sharon Enav’s direction brings a prickly tension"

"‘Attempts’ is performed with great panache by Mark Huhnen, Jennifer Pearcy-Edwards and Alex Kanefksy"

"‘Attempts’ that will blow you out of the water with its brave experimentation in form and charismatic performances"
