"Half Eight Mass of a Tuesday As an institution, a morning mass is played for its own theatricality, looking into the minds of a small congregation. Why have these people trekked to church on a crisp October morn? Puppets, miniatures, shadow play and perspective reveal."
"A thoroughly satisfying theatrical experience, perfection, we now know, is possible." Limerick Event Guide
"extraordinary in its attention to detail and precision"
"one's sense of satisfaction is substantial. Well worth a visit."
