Comments from the Front

Victoria Firth, Director, Y Theatre, Leicester (6.5.05):

“Great feedback from those who attended. Our over-55’s social group was buzzing about it the next day.”

Irene Wroe (3rd Stage Drama Group, LBT, Huddersfield), 17.4.05:

“Your rehearsal last Wednesday was a most exhilarating, informative and rewarding experience. This was the third time I had seen you acting and, as before, I was struck by your talents and how wonderfully you capture the issues and sense of your subject matter. You deal with sensitive issues with conviction, truth and humour leaving your audience touched and many in it identifying with the actors and their situations.”

Rona Cosh, Director and General Manager, Ringwood Hall Hotel, Chesterfield (2005):

“Our sincere thanks for all your hard work. The praise has been extensive… Once again a hugely successful event… Looking forward enormously to the next season of theatre dinners… Clearly these Dinner Theatre performances have been extremely successful this year.”

Maralyn Sarrington, General Manager of the New Wimbledon Theatre, writing in the Friends Newsletter, 2004:

“I really loved Double Dutch – a double bill in our studio dealing with issues of approaching old age… The acting was superb and the writing and subject matter very moving. I do hope Yellow Leaf Theatre will return to us before long.”

Peter Lathan writing in 2003 in The British Theatre Guide of ‘Double Dutch’ at the Customs House, South Shields:

“It’s an odd fact that you are more likely to see a good production from a small-scale touring theatre company than from a mid-scale one. Why this should be is not at all clear but, in my experience at any rate, it is true… An enjoyable and thought-provoking evening’s theatre.”

Suzy Harrison, volunteer usher at the Square Chapel Centre for the Arts, Halifax (22.10.03):

“We thought the plays were wonderful… Although both plays looked at serious issues, there was plenty of laughter… You have to learn to laugh in order to bear it, and this play gave us the opportunity, even for those who know how accurate it is.”

Edith Radford, Project Manager and Centre Co-ordinator, The Parish Centre, Stonegravels, Chesterfield (13.10.03):

“A most enjoyable evening, an excellent production, thoroughly enjoyed by everyone present… Although this was a first for our Centre, it will not be the last… We look forward to welcoming you all back in the not too distant future.”
