"Ballistic is an inventive and elegant work of storytelling that offers an accomplished example of the power of theatre." ★★★★★ The Reviews Hub
"This is a masterful piece of theatre – the writing is clean and clever, the staging is resourcefully sparse and aesthetically beautiful, and even when you anticipate the ending, the impact is still like a punch to the stomach. I’m not going to forget this play for a long time." ★★★★★ Stage Talk Magazine
"Mixes humour and tragedy and kept the audience on the edge of their seats. Highly recommended." ★★★★ One4Review
