Description "Tsoutas’ impact is roughly the sort Goddard used to specialise in, a style that his the audience at all those ‘irritating’ points that can make sitting through a performance a physical discomfort….His is a talent which knows how to bring home the nightmare quality of prosaic events which assume metaphysical status by virtue of the fact that they keep repeating", Inner-City Voice.
“Tsoutas is a huge talent…." On the Street.
