                                                                 Some Critical Reviews of the show:

 

“Roost keeps us all hooked as he reels us in from around the room, but watching the focused energy he spends on the nearer couple becomes a performance within a performance. Does Roost paint while playing Bacon? No. He’s not a painter, he’s an actor and yet in the act of live creation the distinction between art forms is rendered null and void.”    [FringeReview] **** Edinburgh 2014
