  • Moving and beautiful

    4 June 2018

    The show was very long (over 3 hours) and the subject not the lightest, but the overall atmosphere was amazing. Very touching, moving, and intimate. The actors were amazing, the plot kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time and the scenery was stunning. A beautiful play.

    We were sitting in the grand tier & struggled to hear everything which slightly spoiled what was otherwise an excellent & very powerful play.

    18 May 2018

    Excellent piece that explored relationships within an extended family that also gave an insight into a specific time period in recent history.
