I thought the production was fantastic- I had an amazing time exploring the space and following different characters. I got split up from my friends and when we all went to the pub after we compared our journeys through the performance, and we tried to piece the story together. I thought all the performers were fantastic and I loved the story. I spent a lot of time looking through the archives, so I learnt a lot about the story before the performance even started. I would recommend their work to anyone. - Louise Taylor

As a fan of shunt, punchdrunk and 'these sort of things' I am generally biased towards such shows, but I was left a little dissapointed by the abattoir pages. The space was too small to be able to explore and there was a general feeling of anti climax throughout. The starting 'exhibition' was very weak and people were getting bored when the time came to move on into the darkness. There were moments of eeriness but these were vreated by the venue, the darkness and strange sounds that were created - not by the performances. There was no story whatsoever to the amateur eye and there was no real spectacle either. The most powerful emotion was feeling like a child exploring the attic in the dark.
This theatre company seems young and perhaps they are still finding their way - I wouldnt rule them out but more substance is required in the next production. - Jammy Jimbo
