'Moore's direction is compelling' - Broadway World
'a fascinating, layered hour that sometimes feels like a piece of live art and at others like a wayward stand-up set' - Lyn Gardner for Stagedoor

'an exceptional piece of work from Wass and Moore' - View from the Cheap Seat

A girl. An empty street. A half-eaten Subway.
And you. And you passing in the rain. Turning the corner when I saw you. 

A.A. is moving from Eastern Europe to the promised land of Guinness and gift shops: Dublin. 

Everyone says she’ll do well ‘cause she owns slacks and knows how to spell. But it turns out that you don't just grow out of working in retail. Or get on the property ladder. Or ascend the corporate ladder. Or own a ladder... without money.

NOTCH received a critically acclaimed run at VAULT Festival 2020 after being developed in collaboration with the creative team after Danaja brought 10 minutes of the piece to The Thelmas' women's writers group in 2018. 

NOTCH was due to run at Summerhall as part of Edinburgh Fringe 2020.
