‘It’s a rare and precious thing to find a show which is not only brilliant, but brilliant in such a wide range of ways.

                                                                                                          ★★★★★ Broadway Baby     


‘A truly superb piece of fringe theatre, with incredibly well structured writing, featuring moments of great pathos as well as high comedy, and strong performances!’

                                                                                                        ★★★★★ Mumble Theatre

There’s a lot of pleasure to be taken from this production. Both performances are very strong, energetic and precisely timed.’

                                                                                                                                             The Stage

'Absolutely bananas, poetic genius, hilarity for the heart'


‘the physical theatre of Blake was outstanding... a humorous yet thoughtful evening‘

                                                                                                                     Northcott Young Critics              

‘The audience was clearly having a whale of a time’

                                                                                                                                Exeunt Magazine

It’s rare to discover a show which succeeds in balancing genuine hilarity and powerful drama, but Juncture Theatre certainly managed it...  A real gem of a show.’

                                                                                                                      ★★★★★ Latest 7

‘Captivating and exhilarating to watch... I would urge anyone who wants to be entertained and thought-provoked to see this show!’


‘Genuinely faultless... outstanding piece of theatre’

★★★★ Broadway Baby

Plenty to relish about this offbeat physical comedy’

★★★★ Fringe Guru

‘Like Enda Walsh and Beckett before him, Hoare balances claustrophobically frenzied comedy with strange, frozen moments of poetry.’

Bella Todd, IdeasTap

‘The double act of Adam Blake and Harry Humberstone was undeniably energetic and their ability to create physical comedy along with more disturbing hilarity was impressive’


‘This production is exciting and engaging and very funny.’

★★★★ The Post

Blake is incredibly funny, and has the ability to make the audience laugh with a single look or twitch of the eyebrows’

★★★★ The Public Review


Bitterly frustrated by a Clown's freedom to play and inability to take life seriously, a Man has taken it upon himself to teach this Clown a lesson and beat some sense into him. A Little Nonsense follows the love and loathing between this tortured double-act and questions endurance and the importance of light and shade in our lives.
