“The eloquence with which Monkeywood have executed this is impressive and beautiful: they have managed to illustrate the tale of a brutal home life while simultaneously portraying the flourishing of a young girl with big dreams.”


“I came to see Once in a House on the last night in the Quays, just wanted to say I really enjoyed it, you were all brilliant. Really dark and disturbing but layered with a warmth. Congrats on a great production.”
