Reviews for our previous production OLD BONES:
"Daniel Hird gives an excellent performance as lothario-turned-wanderer. His oscillation between genuine anguish and flirtatious charm maintains a good narrative pace as Napier is buffeted across oceans and centuries, haunted by a secret too terrible to divulge." (THE SKINNY)
"Fascinating, excellently paced, and brilliantly performed... he fully embodies the roguish, dangerous charm and anguish of the character with finesse." (THE WEE REVIEW)
