"Whilst many would argue that theatre's primary motive is to entertain, the best type of theatre, in my opinion, challenges the way you think and makes you see the world through the eyes of another person. Markus Potter and David Holthouse's gripping and harrowing drama Stalking The Bogeyman does just this."

"Stalking the Bogeyman is necessary and thought-provoking drama."

"Markus Potter's careful delivery and spirited direction, absorbs the audience and has each of the characters emerge from the auditorium to join the space in the frankest way possible. On a multi-functional playing space, he moves location effortlessly, balancing the realism within the text against an immersive expressionistic set that merges David's childhood bedroom and memories with his efforts to 'stalk' the bogeyman in order to find some solace."

"Potter's control of the performances is perceptive and responds exactly to the needs of the text. It's clear the cast have found an effective tone and rhythm to the piece, and all six performers are so firmly on the same page in their performance styles that it ensures the story is never lost in the histrionics."

"Stalking The Bogeyman is a challenging, thought provoking and vital piece of theatre that demands to be seen and proves not only the cathartic nature of art, but also the importance of storytelling as a vital tool in our emotional and psychological response."

"The most beautifully inspiring experience In the theatre I have ever had."
"Markus Potter and David Holthouse have produced something that is more than a script, more than a play. They have produced an access point for the world to understand the true reality of being a male survivor, and intricacies and complexities of living with the biggest secret one can ever have".
