[T]his entertaining hour will not just make you think – it will make you roar with laughter. [...]Tracing religious and royal influences on the population and alliances with France, Ireland and England, we get the sense of Scotland’s unique moral and ecumenical make-up.
Bigotry-multi-layered and needs more exposure. Edinburgh Guide
With cheeky, catchy lyrics – the alliteration in the blighted potatoes song is impressive – and an energy that infects the audience with its enthusiasm, this is a fun packed hour. A subject such as sectarianism is not easy to address so it is refreshing to see work that acknowledges the ever-changing nature of belonging but does so in such a way that does not patronise or alienate its audience.
