5 Stars, Breaking The Fourth Wall

"There's so much to love about this show; not least Sarah Milton's performance."
"It is an excellent performance in a play that holds much promise."
"Milton plays her (Daisy) with drive and focus, at one with the rhythms of her own script and never missing a beat."
The Scotsman

"Milton perfectly contrasts Daisy’s flustered Essex tones with Cath’s self-assured drawl and coach Danny’s blokey poolside incitements."
"With an admirable lightness of touch, Milton steers her characters into darker psychological terrain."
"A compelling story, deftly told."
The Stage

"We loved @TumbleTuckPlay today - a bold performance full of energy from emerging new writer @_SarahMilton. Such a strong solo performance - a tough job but [she] made it look easy :)"
@SpotlightUK

"Milton brilliantly distinguishes the different characters in the piece, through subtle changes in her tone of voice and the use of different accents."
"Milton gives a strong and convincing performance throughout a delightful show from start to finish."
4 stars, The Wee Review

"Milton’s physicality takes us to the pool and beyond."
"Energetic and engaging."
