PRESS AND REVIEWS 

Frankly Genius
— The Guardian
A remarkable storyteller
— Radio Times
Terrific fun
— Robin Hardy (Dir. The Wickerman)
From the fantastical time-travel cathedral in the Italian mountains, Damanhur, to Copenhagen’s hippy (ex-)drug haven Christiania, via the hot-tubs of California’s Synanon and a dominatrix-led castle in the Czech Republic – David Bramwell’s tireless search for Utopia sounds like a Boy’s Own adventure. That he manages to convey his travel tales, thoughts and experiences and keep his audience engaged and entertained is quite a feat. He carries it off with natural charm, fluency and wit.

It’s lovely storytelling; not rambling and not patronising to the communities he visits (however easily parodied). It has the zeal of a real enthusiast for alternative ways of living, albeit one with a hot-tub obsession, and is well directed, with a natural feel for the subject matter and an eye for a visual joke by Emma Kilbey.
— Lisa Wolfe, Total Theatre
Bramwell’s search for the story behind his artefact takes the audience on a colourful tour around Britain that is never patronising or of guilty giving too much away. When narrating his wild experiences Bramwell has the control of a competent ringmaster. Quite excellent. A monologue that keeps you fascinated until the very end. Go and see the Haunted Moustache without further ado.
— Ashby Lennard, Broadway Baby
A touching two-acter that never loses momentum or interest. Intelligent, witty, literary and well observed, the time flew. This is a five star show to watch more than once.
