Gibb Rishes Songologue is one of the strangest and most engaging things you'll ever see ... the evening for me was mainly about the continuing power of real, warts-out, beautiful moon-gazing lunatic storytellers.

The Necessary shows Anne's extraordinary inventiveness, vocal flexibility, and theatricality as she visibly struggles to articulate the ultimately empty words.

Barbara Wilson, Buxton Fringe 2010

It was a virtuoso performance that was emotionally full-bodied, sensitive, satirical, warm and outgoing. It was great theatre, an impressive development of an exciting new genre.
