Audience Reactions:

"Great production. Wonderful,atmospheric set, and superb, naturalistic acting by all of the cast. Bravo to the cast, crew and director. The whole production was fantastic." T.F.


"I thought the actors played their parts extremely well, portraying a varied set of emotions believably. This was easy to watch and highly recommended if you need a lift! The accents were convincing and the timing was good with many funny one liners. I really enjoyed this production and viewing is recommended. Only a couple of days left so get in quick,it's a great way to spend the evening." Anon


"The Theatre is wonderful it's very cosy and great to be so close to the action. The production, well, what can I say, the direction was brilliant, the cast superb. I especially loved Ouisa, who pulled some of the most amazing faces I've seen. It was done to a very professional standard, the accents, whilst strange on first hearing, you soon got used to, and overall it gave for a very entertaining and powerful show." J.B.


"I absolutely love the theatre, it's the second time I've seen a play in the 'theatre' downstairs and I love it. It's intimate and really very special to be so close to the actors. I thought the actresses were all outstanding, each with very strong roles. The actresses had all got fantastic accents!! No first night nerves at all. The main hairdresser was fantastic. Some really funny one-liners!! Excellent." J.G.


"The play was excellent and the theatre is an perfect venue. The actresses were very good indeed." A.


"Warm, funny play with some very touching moments. A lovely set with great costumes, and a very good cast." Anon
