Cooked was clever and funny. We enjoyed the simple set, quick-witted dialogue and the intimate space. The attached pub is re-opening soon (possibly already?) and that will add another reason to go back to the theatre. Visited The Bread & Roses Theatre on 2016-05-12

This short play was seriously funny with a serious message. It was well acted and tightly written. Brilliant use of a small space to imply different locations. We all really enjoyed it very much. Visited The Bread & Roses Theatre on 2016-05-10

Sharp, quick witted and a perfect way to spend a Friday night in this intimate and very 'different' environment above the pub. I would definitely recommend for a relaxing and easy going evening. Visited The Bread & Roses Theatre on 2016-05-13

Sharp, hilarious, and terrifyingly astute. One of the best theatre trips I've had in a long time. Can't believe it only ran for two weeks and I hope it has another life somewhere else! Visited The Bread & Roses Theatre on 2016-05-13

Very funny, if dark, and believable. Excellent performances by both of the cast, who steered just clear of caricature and managed real emotional punch. Especially enjoyed Pia Fitzgerald's dream sequences which achieved a perfect blend between the surreal and the mundane. All in all, a well cooked meal with a number of interesting, contrasting and tasty courses. Visited The Bread & Roses Theatre on 2016-05-07

Superbly paced, structured and scripted dark comedy about celeb culture, with a good dose of gender concerns thrown in. We really enjoyed this and will be keen to see what Christopher Adams comes up with next. Such taut, barbed dialogue, performed with suitable hints of madness and approaching frenzy by the onstage duo of Timothy Allsop (who also directs -- and very well!) and Pia Fitzgerald as Miranda Conquest, the cook who can't. Highly recommended. Visited The Bread & Roses Theatre on 2016-05-05

Witty and dark, "Cooked" is punchy and delightfully entertaining. Brilliant performances by the two lead actors make this show an unpredictable, fast-paced thrill. "Cooked" is a story of love, deception and bittersweet vindication that packs a few twists and turns along the way. Would highly recommend! Visited The Bread & Roses Theatre on 2016-05-05

Funny and trenchant and surprisingly nuanced. The comic timing of the two leads is spot on. The denouement was very satisfying and the turning point was really delightful. Recommended A+! Visited The Bread & Roses Theatre on 2016-05-05
