I am so honored and thankful to the Darkchat team who came to see and review (BEAT) my solo show at the Fringe a last month. They just got in touch to send me the review, which I am over the moon to say received a 9/10 - which they say is an equivalent of 5 STARS rating. While the review is not online yet, here is what it says:

BEAT by Lizzie Stanton - Just the Tonic at The Caves. Saturday 23rd August 2014.


BEAT turned out to be my last show at this year’s Fringe and fulfilled my criteria of what a show here should be; a play I hadn’t planned to see, by an unknown (to me) performer in one of Edinburgh’s small venues.

BEAT is a solo show performed with an imaginative use of props such as a host of hand sanitisers (one for every day of the week), a toy dragon and a sparkly dragon costume as well as a brilliant LED glove dance routine. It explores the limitations of OCD in a humorous and touching story set around the lead, Cassie, and her family.

This was Lizzie Stanton’s first year performing in Edinburgh and I hope she will return for a longer run next year. She is a name I will be looking out for in 2015.
