‘Ladies Day’, February 2023

‘’I came home absolutely elated, and all those sitting around us were just as delighted. It was absolutely brilliant and the play is my new all-time WDS favourite! Previously it was Steel Magnolias. When we set out to watch the play earlier that evening, I was wondering how a cast […]

‘Showtime at First Baptist’, October 2017

“A surprising play, that was well-acted throughout, bringing us numerous different characters, seemingly adopted (literally sometimes) at the drop of a hat.

Educating Rita
What a triumph! We came to the Thursday performance and just want to say how outstanding it was. Congratulations to every-one but Malcolm and Sarah were brilliant – all the dialogue to learn and Sarah’s Liverpudlian accent. Superb! Just wish more people could have seen it than over the three […]

Entertaining Angels
Not having seen this play before, I wondered about the concept of a widow seeing her dead husband and talking to him – but it worked beautifully, and is a very cleverly written piece, which I thoroughly enjoyed. It was amusing, thought-provoking and emotive – I must admit to shedding […]
