Of all the shows I have been involved with over the past five years this is the 'one. From the attitude of the performers from the beginning to the trill of the show, it was fun, poignant, so cleverly written, and Anna and Rob were perfectly cast, playing off each other, as they did in life Great actors, comedians and with clever musical timing. It was a pleasure from beginning to end. That is not just about the show, but more about the reason I think so much of them. Performance is not just about being on stage, but also about the reaction of the artists to the practicalities of life, and they could not be faulted. They were in my venue, and they were part of the staff ,no matter how many accolades they had, they were decent, helpful and considerate. I wish them all the best for the future, as they thoroughly deserve every minute of it! That is not to say that there are not many people in the Free Festival deserving of praise for their attitude and talent, it is just refreshing when it is so totally unexpected and original.

4 Stars from the Scotsman is great for a first show, but this really isn't enough! Great acting, hugely funny, deeply touching. The writing is excellent.

I have just returned from Edinburgh and this show was my stand out star of festival. This is what the Edinburgh Festival should be all about, finding little gems in upstairs rooms in pubs, the talent is out there! The story is of one girl's search for the ‘one’, it is a beautifully written and enthralling narrative with a little poetry and music thrown in. The two actors (Anna Victoria & Rob Smythson) are wonderfully captivating and the chemistry between them just adds to the superb performances. The show runs only for about half an hour but it is very slick and polished, which some London West End shows could do with imitating. All this and its FREE, part of the free festival. I paid £10 -£15 pounds to see some named comedians at the festival that frankly weren’t worth it, go find these guys as they won’t be free for long.

I've seen one of the previews for this show and was very impressed. Very original writing, combined with wonderul performances - I can't believe this is free!
