“Whilst centred on Parramatta the work still resonates with those that may not be as familiar with the area. This is a human story that is relatable regardless of where someone may live”
“For everyone that has been a teenager, for those that have children, families and friends, this work speaks to a broad audience, not just those that live in the Western suburbs. Presented with humour and compassion, THE INCREDIBLE HERE AND NOW is a wonderful new Australian play telling Australian stories that everyone should see and hopefully it will return to an Australian stage soon.”
Jade Kops – Broadway World

“It was the perfect blend of human story and world view. Warm and funny and human and thought-provoking… THE INCREDIBLE HERE AND NOW is a high quality, exciting and resonant production which is ultimately accepting of the progress around it.”
Judith Greenway – Sydney Arts Guide

“The beauty of this play was that it finally, finally understood where I’d come from. Michael and I are not the same person, but his grief and growing pains were played out in areas of Sydney I’ve also grown up in… I don’t know if Felicity Castagna knows this, but through Michael and his friends, up on stage, my past in Parramatta has been validated. ” Erica Enriquez – Weekend Notes 

“It was such a fantastic show that should be shown to people beyond Western Sydney and the most moving and enjoyable thing I’ve seen this year. ”
