Reviews:

Simon Stephens: 'Lydia Rynne’s bad ass comedy is full of love and kindness and drumming and made me want to play the bass for the first time in 13 years. See the sh*t out of it.'

'Alice Pitt-Carter gives a ferocious performance in Lydia Rynne's exhilarating and refreshing monologue on conflicted attitudes to motherhood'

⭐⭐⭐⭐ The Stage

'keeps the audience captivated with humour and vivacity, giving us old-school feminist rage alongside millennial self-doubt and torturous self-awareness'  ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Young Perspective News

'this abandonment of conformity and embracing a subculture makes Hear Me Howl a kind of estrogen-fuelled reworking of Fight Club, with Jess finally comprehending her social bondage and screaming “up yours!'

⭐⭐⭐⭐ London City Night

'It’s depressingly rare to come across a show that portrays the experience of being a young woman with such minute accuracy... undercurrents of trying to recover yourself from what everyone else expects you to be run deep in this play, adding up to something seriously impressive'

⭐⭐⭐⭐ The Spy In The Stalls

'Might Never Happen is an extremely well put together show that highlights a major issue experienced by large numbers of women every day. Whilst it is not always easy watching, it is certainly an interesting and intriguing piece that will guarantee intense conversations amongst everyone that sees it. And if those conversations move the world forward in tackling street harassment, then the cast and crew of Might Never Happen really will have done the world a great service.'
