About Pony Cam

“Paradise Lots is a work expertly crafted to give them autonomy and power over the adults in their audience. This is a rare event and exhilarating to experience.” Morgan Rose (Riot Stage)

“Working with Pony Cam opened my eyes to the possibilities of live theatre… having watched my Dad experience Paradise Lots, there really is no better way to move, provoke and challenge an audience” Ludomir Kemp-Mykyta (Paradise Lots, 2021 Cast).
