ART IN HEAVEN (2013)
I recently came to a performance of Art in Heaven, which I enjoyed very much. I was impressed by the quality of the performances from all actors, and could see how demanding each role was. I learned things about Gwen John and Georgia O'Keefe which I hadn't known, and always love to hear about Frieda Kahlo. This was a brave piece which combined a love of art with performance in an unusual and typically challenging way for Wired.
GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN (2012)
Thank you so much for this memorable piece of theatre that you treated Alison and me to on Sunday 13th at 14:00. It's your kind of innovation that made the trip to the festival worthwhile to me – the concept, the execution, and the performances were outstanding!
One of our Fringe favourites was Wired Theatre's Gone But Not Forgotten, in a small terrace house on 'Shakespeare Street'. The audience is literally on the set with the actors, guided from room to room as the narrative jumps from the past to the present, thus making the experience purely voyeuristic.
LIKE CAGED BIRDS (2008)
Successfully weaves itís way around and through us, as if we were the ghosts; observing and unseen. Flickers, residues and half-stories are pieced together through overheard conversations and chance encounters. The various dimensions of relationships between the characters are revealed in detailed and artfully specific work by the performers; sometimes obvious and theatrical, sometimes private, subtle and only revealed by a curious glance through a window. These subtleties were beautifully placed and orchestrated, contrasting with set pieces and wide-ranging soundscapes.
A wonderful opportunity to listen in on all those park people and
conversations you always wonder about with relative impunity.
A lovely evening the characters will keep on playing here forever.
innovative and intriguing character development and use of space.

An astonishing mixture of styles matched by a superb choice of venue,
funny, fascinating and highly entertaining.
You've perfected the theatre of the grotesque. Really excellent.
UP THOSE STAIRS
One of the most interesting pieces of theatre I've seen. Performance
in the house gave it tremendous atmosphere - Wonderful!
A great mix of talent.
Excellent performances quite compelling!!
Thrilling to be so close! Each scene had enough drama to stand alone
- so the final video bringing it all together was a bonus.
Chills and thrills! Keeps you guessing ! Great fun.
