"Three innovative and adventurous short plays, by Suzanne Hauser, Sally Williams and Alex Broun, and then the Sydney Première of "Wellness: A social Justice Play" by Ella Arendelle. A throughly entertaining night of live theatre, very fast paced, and an absolute audience pleaser. Roz Riley has expertly directed her ensemble cast, providing the eight actors with multiple roles galore, in four delightful thought-provoking dramas. - Sydney Stage Arts
"All four short plays feature non-stop drama from the beginning to the end with splashes of humour." WeekendNotes
"Throughout the evening I was able to enjoy the confident acting of all performers. After interval Wellness - written and performed by Ella Arendelle as the main female character - was a very honest examination of An Obsession with 'Chocolate' ... to quote from the program. Then Ella stripped down to her underwear ... in spite of being quite overweight - we could see that the Wellness play dealt authentically with current issues of image and nastiness and food food food!!! - our guilty obsession in social media and daily life. I enjoyed the preview evening very much." Arts and Tarts Radio show 2RRR
