“Jessica Innes [was] remarkable for [her] multi-roling”
“Jessica Innes who turns herself from the sexy sex-mad girlfriend clad in underwear and suspenders, to concerned middle-aged mum in the blink of an eye"
- TheReviewsHub ★★★★.5
"Indeed all seven of the cast earn their heroin-and-human-waste-flecked stripes for this most rigorous rollercoaster of rides."
- BristolPost ★★★★★
"Full credit to the entire cast who attack this show with relentless conviction, and some real, genuine performances."
"The cast are so real, so unique and so dark. They are nothing less than brilliant."
- HisKind ★★★★★
"Each cast member – Chris Dennis (Begbie), Calum Douglas Barbour (ensemble), Greg Esplin (Tommy), Jessica Innes (June/Ensemble), Erin Marshall (Alison/Ensemble), Gavin Ross (Renton) and Rory Speed (Sickboy) – put so much into their performance and committed strongly to their characters."
"Jessica Innes has an impressive vocal range that takes her effortlessly from lairy sexpot Gail Houston to Renton’s desperate mum"
"When Rentons’ mother (Jessica Innes) addresses his prone body on the floor at the end, she cries out in anguish: ‘I’ve lost one son, I’m not losing another!’, or words to that effect. Then suddenly the cast are giving their Bows, it’s over and we’re leaving. Walking down the stairs to the exit, I’m in a daze. I’m lost in my own reflexive process – thinking about my own mother, and what I put her through when she was alive. Wow!"
"The performers unapologetic, brutal and crass production is a masterpiece. The character work, chemistry on stage is extraordinary and the complete understanding of the text and themes throughout this production is reflected beautifully in their portrayal of these characters. They are the characters, not just a bunch of actors ‘pretending’ on stage. "
