Audience Member
"Crampton has a great voice that entices and explains. He pulls the audience in like a magical toyshop owner, he has some joy and sorrow that he cannot live to keep to himself ... The final performance of “Roll Down” is a powerhouse in every sense of the word. Going out on a sublime high, the ensemble case gives it more welly than a gaggle of pirate wranglers. Amazingly deep, rousing and quite brilliant, the show goes out with an unmatchable gusto."

"A wonderful concept, brilliantly realised."
Maurice Wren, The Refugee Council
"It’s sometimes hard to remember, through all the hype and emotional language, just how important it really is to get a sense of migration and what it means. It’s not something many of us have truly experienced. But for all of us last night the work you brought before us, the brilliant musicianship and your thorough and deep understanding of the issues meant a huge amount. The fact that you bring this in so accessible a form to your audience is just brilliant."
David Wolfson, Refugees Welcome Milton Keynes
