"A fine ensemble cast unites under director Peter Blackburn to present a lively production brimming with pathos and humour."  

Cameron Woodhead for The Age

"...the play demands high calibre performers, and this cast delivers."

Sophia Dickinson for Stage Whispers 

 

"Their ability to bring together a cast and crew with well-rounded, artistic pedigrees also pronounces this company as a well-positioned, driven and visionary force... it really is sensational and a sign of great things to come."

Donna Sue Robson for Weekend Notes

"Lightning Jar Theatre grabs the proverbial bull by the horns and gives us an evening of beautiful Chekhovian tragicomedy."

Ian Nott for Theatre People

"...emotionally engaging you without really being aware of it until the weight of the end knocks the stuffing out." 

Arts Review

"Stupid F..king Bird is a playful, exciting and thoroughly modern take on The Seagull."

Chris Boyd for The Australian

"... a beautiful, funny, insightful and near perfect piece of theatre."

Ana Vucic for In Review
