WONDERFUL reviews and audience response for All Thumbs....

ONLINE REVIEWS for ALL THUMBS...

"...the overall performance is utterly engaging and charming. Like talking to a crazed stranger at a bus stop, the viewer is unsure whether to pull away or let Lena carry on with her crazed tale, afraid of where it might end up. Simply put, All Thumbs is quirky, light and fun, and that in itself deserves two thumbs up."


"...All Thumbs is filled with... positivity, laughter and humour that will get you through the rest of the day and beyond! Sedgwick’s easy to understand and to follow writing together with Lockey’s wonderful ability to portray a character in such a natural way makes this play easy to engage with and to enjoy....It’s a one woman show where one brilliant actress does an amazing job with the limited resources, stage wise, that she has. Going back to the basics of storytelling, Lockey’s charming and, at times, even saucy Lena will stick in your memory long after the play is over.

So, give All Thumbs a thumbs up! And don’t miss this little gem in the very heart of Dublin, running until March 12th.


"Julie Lockey gives Lena a good sense of comic timing, expressions that are knowing, and at times counter to Sedgwick's direct, well written lines. Comedy is something Locke does well, giving a serious, yet quirkiness, to Lena that makes sense; she talks to thumbs after all, and by the time it arrives, it doesn't feel odd. Watching Locke work, giving a feeling of odd Victoria Wood type characters, there was a sense that taking on a Willy Russell role might be an intriguing step."



AUDIENCE FEEDBACK

Loved loved LOVED All Thumbs! Giggled and grinned like a loon throughout. – TG

Bonkers, utterly bonkers... LO'B

Weird, creepy, hilarious – SH

I laughed so much during All Thumbs that I thought the ushers would try to shush me or drag me out. - PG


Lindsay Jane Sedgwick has done it again! ALL THUMBS is hilarious with funny and fast-paced writing about an impossibly daft situation. Julie Lockey is perfect in the role of Lena - the woman who stole a thumb. It is definitely a must-see. I am still smiling, several hours later! Go and see it! - NL


A perfect little slice of madness... A M


Surreal and hilarious from start to finish, with a captivating performance. You'll never look at thumbs in the same way again...." - Sorcha Hegarty, Candlelit Tales

Are you in Dublin? Do you fancy a snappy, witty and maybe a bit kooky one-woman play during your lunch break or before you hit the pub? Then wait no more and go to the International Bar Theatre to attend a performance of All Thumbs Play! You won't regret it.– NC

Very inventive and funny piece from Lindsay. Well worth seeing - EN

The play was so enjoyable, and original. Such a sharp script.  Congratulations - ED

Congratulations on producing the best short play that I’ve seen in a long time.  I didn’t know what to expect from reading your title ‘All Thumbs’ but your treatment and direction brought a whole new thought process to life for me.  I hadn’t thought about thumbs before.  Indeed if I were to choose a digit, I would probably have chosen my pinkie. But now I guarantee that thumbs rule for me in the future – CC
