Previously for our Marie Lloyd play: This is a really enjoyable show telling the story of this amazing woman. How often do you get to celebrate a great working-class hero as well as to sit back and join Lloyd in a music hall sing-a-long?

Morning Star

Previously for our Suffragette play: By turns enlightening, harrowing, heart-warming and funny....this excellent fly-on-the-wall look into the lives of the suffragettes proved to be an emotional rollercoaster.

Jersey Evening Post
