Pressure at the Park Theatre reviews
I was totally engrossed. The acting is wonderful and the cast and the script great. I even had a tear in my eye on two occasions with the authenticity of the emotion portrayed. Well worth seeing if you have any interest in WW2 on any level.
What a fantastic play!! Well written and brilliantly acted throughout, cast bring fantastic energy tobeach of their roles, enjoyed from start to finish.
This play was superb in every respect: the script, the acting, the staging. I haven't been so mesmerized by a topic in years and am pressuring my friends to catch whatever performances they can get tickets for.
The play was excellent , the acting very good and all three of us enjoyed the performance. I think our friend will be a new convert to ThePark Theatre. However we were unable to sit together as my friend was unable to sit in the back row of the circle. She needs a walking stick but I thought she she would be able to manage the seat. I will know next time. However, your usher was extremely helpful and found her a single seat downstairs.
Excellent so well written cast acted produced. Tense, entertaining interesting. One of the best Park Theatre productions.
