“The writing is hot, the action non-stop and a knife-edge sense of timing helps Western Theatre Conspiracy land a winner…”
Peter Birnie, The Vancouver Sun
“Mojo is a tense and terrific theatrical experience that will wring you out like a three-day bender.”
Brian Peterson, The Westender
“Mojo smacked me in the head, spat in my face, and left me laughing and liking it.”
Colin Thomas, The Georgia Straight
“…executed with verve, style and cunning.”
Jo Ledingham, The Vancouver Courier
