Selected reviews for Shift Work:

"Dean Elliott’s Shift Work was a particular highlight in the evening - Tender, charming and one that really makes the heart ache."

"The final stand-out is Dean Elliott’s Shift Work, inspired by The Fall’s song of the same name. - With its ping-pong-like structure, bouncing between speakers, Elliott’s text builds towards a climax of domesticity. And every second you are desperate for that balloon to burst."

"Dean Elliott’s Shift Work perfectly captures the beginnings of a relationship breakdown - this for me a piece I’d be very interested in seeing developed further also."

Dean also creates solo work, his acclaimed silent one man show Blank debuted at the Exeter Ignite festival and returned to the same venue for a 6 night run in 2013. He has written, directed and facilitated theatre workshops for performers aged 8 to 80.

Stephanie Cross on Blank for Exeter Daily:

“Unique and Enjoyable”

“An Excruciating, funny, well-crafted performance”

“Fresh, engaging and certainly one to watch in the future” 

Kate J Wilson on Blank for Wildfire Review

“Hilariously perceptive, a brave one man show"

“Well constructed and extremely enjoyable”

“Reminiscent of Charlie Chaplin”
