Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens 1850




June 1999:
THE VAUXHALL PLEASURE PROMENADE


"It's a kind of Duckie Roots, linking the rich past to current artistic endeavours. It's time travel of the imagination."
- Time Out














October 2000:
EXPLOSION!!! THE ROCK 'N ROLL GHOSTS OF SOHO


"The Duckie crew have been at it again, unravelling the notion of what counts as theatre, eroding the distinctions between art forms and teetering on a knife edge between the glorious and the embarassing... The experience is enormous fun"
- Time Out









Brick Lane 1842








October 2001:
BLOWZABELLAS, Drabs, Mawks and Trugmoldies


"It's fascinating stuff... suitably reflextive and unexpectedly poignant. Duckie, never less than enthusiastic, mixes the contemporary with the historical to a sometimes baffling degree."
- Time Out - critic's choice
