“A shrewd and bitingly funny send-up of the ‘spiritual journey”
★★★★ PubTheatres Magazine

“That Pariah Khan is a smart man. It’s a jaunty hour, full of well-timed gags yet beneath the joviality, there lies an acerbic touch.”
★★★★ Kris Hallett, Bristol Post reviewer

“With precision, smart observational writing, and a small selection of props, Khan has created something really wonderful – a warm, funny, and thought-provoking piece of theatre.”
★★★★ Stage Talk Magazine
