EDINBURGH ENCORE SIGNAL FAILURE NEW DATES/TIMES AT SOHO PLAYHOUSE
“I really enjoyed it…actors were both so good, so charming, really believable…Sasha Ellen has a great furture as a playwright and actor.” – Broadway Radio
“Well performed, short, gritty two-character romantic comedy…very enjoyable…two outstanding performances.” –Theaterscene.net“Both Ellen and Cowan were lovely in their roles and showed the loneliness and hope of young people living in often anonymous big cities…
Signal Failure is definitely a success.” *** RaveReviews“A genuinely fresh look at not only relationships, but also modern city life.” ****
The Scotsman“Rife with cheeky humour, an upfront and witty script and two brilliantly funny performances. Definitely recommended!” **** Broadway Baby
“Bittersweet, honest and truthful romantic comedy with emotional heart.” **** The Edinburgh Guide
