I was blown away by the detail, and by the dedication of everyone involved in bringing this to the stage. This is what is meant by 'doing it for the love of'. It was a beautiful show and the performances were better than anything I've seen in the West End for a long time. I would recommend anyone in search of an evening to re-inspire their love of theatre, or to inspire themselves full stop to go NOW. I'm very happy I did.

This was an amazing production, the acting was superb and with the jazz music playing and the table arrangement it felt very authentic.... I liked they way the actors used all of the bar area etc., to tell their story.... I loved it!

Stimulating and thought-provoking: I thoroughly enjoyed the play. The direction was innovative and the acting was excellent! I have been inspired to find out more about Kerouac and his associates and aim to read 'On the Road'! If the purpose of theatre is to entertain, inform and educate, then Pilotlight's production pressed all the buttons! Well worth a visit! Fringe theatre at its best!

Terrific cast and some real tour-de-force moments of direction add up to an excellent evening. A really nice intimate setting contributes to the atmosphere, as well.

I was blown away by this play at such an unknown venue. High level of acting from the whole cast, which was large, and staged in an intimate and exhilarating way. Who needs to go to the West End?!

Really excellent show, recommended for anyone who might be interested in Kerouac and friends.You will want to know more if you go to see it.. Congratulations to the cast and production team.Keep the pilotlight burning bright!
