Reviews

“Pitched in a chatty style, RU4ME makes for a gentle, funny-old-life-affirming comedy.” Jason Blake, Sydney Morning Herald.

“Wayne Harrison has neatly and clearly delivered a contemporary story with just the right amount of yester-year reference, and keeps the conversation snappy and personable and has brought out a brave and bolshy, sexy performance in Annie Byron. This show will sell out. It’s great fun and perfect for anyone who has tried the computerized chaos of finding love online.” Augusta Supple

“…Byron’s delivery invites immediate connection” Sydney Morning Herald.
