I thought it would be an interesting show but it was superb! I loved the script and the performances. Spot on, keep them coming
Victorian Women was interesting, informative and intelligent, great acting from all – well done, enjoyed it very much and must re-watch to make sure I haven’t missed anything
Thoroughly enjoyable! Fascinating! And immaculately staged and performed. Thank you. What next?
Audience feedback after the Live Stream 20th August 2020
Audience feedback about the performances on 17th-19th January 2019 at The Calder Bookshop and Theatre.
Well-written, witty and full of historic references that come alive thanks to exactness of language and very good acting.
We were motivated to learn more about these ladies – an intimate performance
Very witty, cleverly performed and staged, beautifully brief and very cosy!
The beautiful writing demonstrates how the human spirit always seems to dream of and aspire to a better, smarter, more sensible world – how, even when the spirit seems to be quiet and still, that hope is just resting, waiting, biding its time.
The actors move seamlessly through from one play to another. The ‘voice’ of each character is distinct, and the tone of the writing reflects not only the personality of each of the women but the nuances of their characters.
It’s an honour to join such Victorian luminaries in the privacy of their own bedrooms where we become confidantes to life-changing decisions and intimate confessions; delicious, personal scandalous detail is beautifully interwoven with fascinating insight into the period and the biographies of these formidable women.
