"Theatrically sophisticated and accomplished” - RealTime Arts Australia"Charming and disarmingly clever… Drake is one of those rare provocative performers who are uber smart but ultra cosy at heart... one of the most interesting and touching performances I’ve seen” - Gscene (UK)"Sunny Drake’s show was a pleasure to behold, a sparkly moment in a life” - Wotever World (UK)"The mood... was similar to a romantic comedy which filled your heart with hope and love. However it was also so profound and sharp that it had a darkness that does not fit into any romantic comedy. The result is a play you leave with powerful images in your mind which are thoroughly attached to the unforgettable story” - Melbourne Arts Fashion
