Sans Love is a triumph in new work. Exploring just how exquisite and excruciating love is, this play is relevant to anyone who has ever stepped a day on this earth, who have experienced love in any form, and who have the courage to remain open to love regardless. – Elizabeth Scales
This is a clever, intricately-thought out show on a topic that everyone can relate to. You could feel the enjoyment amongst the audience, all huddled as we were on cushions on the floor…Sans Love is an utterly delightful and human piece of physical theatre. – Style From the Suburban Intellect
I must confess I’m not a keen theatre-goer but shows like One Black Mark win me over. – Cathy Dee
