Audience/Critics Feedback:

No Post on Sunday stands proudly on its own as a highly entertaining and often poignant tale about community and communication: a fine example of Kiwi commedia.

John Smythe, Theatreview 2016

The cast soars through the performance with constant laughter from the audience as they weave in and out of light and darkness, nailing life lessons that resonate with the audience as well as creating great moments of empathy…No Post on Sunday is one of the funniest and most enjoyable shows that I have seen this year and more importantly, the show touched my heart, inspiring me to be a better person.

Courtney Rose Brown, Art Murmurs

Full of quirky humour, the main players of Armstrong and Dombroski have a natural talent for comedy… The simple but affecting story is not all humour though, as Armstrong’s portrayal of being rejected by his love interest creates a real moment of pathos that is very moving and gives the production depth and a sense of reality

– Ewen Coleman, Dominion Post

…an exciting momentum, driven by the myopic energy of someone thrilled by their own ridiculous discovery and chasing it to the most absurd conclusion possible. It’s a really fun energy to perform and a really fun energy to watch.

– Adam Goodall, Pantograph Punch
