Fliss Merrin‎ to Carol Robson 29 February · Your set tonight was fantastic, you were on top form and always such an inspiration!

Edinburgh Fringe 2014 BroadwayBaby 4 star review:

‘Finding Me’ (Take me as I am) 

My 50 minute one woman show which ran for 11 days

The putty-like flexibility of spoken word allows Carol Robson to navigate this ever-changing universe with lyrical élan. (Rivkah Brown)
