"Dan Ireland-Reeves is clearly a talent to look out for." -- BroadwayBaby

"Enlightening... Ireland-Reeves has a cheeky charm to him that’s easy to watch as he narrates his adventures in the dark rooms, mazes and corridors of a London sauna. He’s a good storyteller and gives the audience what they want – a bit of sex, a bit of drama, a bit of tragedy and a lot of comedy." -- Chad Armstrong, Cultural Binge (Sydney)

★★★★ "A fascinating look into a world that people from outside the realm of gay men are largely oblivious to, but also an investigation into those jobs we fall into when we were planning to be doing something else, but we remain because we like the paycheck or the people we work with... a tightly paced performance that held attention, delivered some laughs and had a deeper meaning beneath it all." -- Graeme Watson, Out in Perth

"Navigating the complexities of its storyline with grace, the production provided an immersive experience that delicately balanced raw passion and heartfelt camaraderie.Through exceptional writing and acting, Dan Ireland-Reeves unveiled a world pulsating with life, love, and the undeniable truth of shared humanity." -- Brendan Daynes, Dance Life Australia

★★★★. "Quite the insight into UK gay sauna culture... Ireland-Reeves is a talent at the accents and mannerisms of the individual characters." -- Alex Dunkin, Glam Adelaide
