Audience Reaction: "Wow, what can we say? Fantastic, terrific performance, truly inspiring and moving, reduced us to tears. Terrific acting by all involved. We came out of the Theatre truly moved." L.F.


"Well done to the whole team for 'My Boy Jack'. Stunning performances by all the cast this evening." M.J.


"Wow, what a moving and beautifully performed production. It was such an intense play but the actors were so natural and elegant throughout leaving the true essence of the story to be told. The play was a great ensemble triumph, the actors were so professional and the directors vision really let the story be told truthfully. I only wish a wider audience could see it. Its such an important part of history its a shame it couldn't be seen on a more national level, especially as we've just commemorated the WW1 anniversary." Anon


"first class.The cast was excellent. The intimacy provided by the studio theatre enhanced the performance enabling the audience to become completely involved. The realistic portrayal of both male and female perspective on the war." Anon


"My wife and I have just returned from "My Boy Jack" and I am writing to thank all concerned for a wonderful experience. We visit The Crescent fairly regularly and are seldom disappointed. Tonight's performance was a real gem with acting as good as we have ever seen from any professional company and better than most. Please thank all involved for a truly great theatrical treat!" J.D.
