“The movement direction, by Julia Cave, is very effective and I loved the cotillion dance scene where four couples follow the steps and we see Catherine talk to John Thorpe and then to Henry Tilney.

This feeling of being part of the dance and catching exchanges is often captured on film but to see it pulled it off on stage is superb.”

Maidenhead Adverstiser

“The Jane Austen novel is brought to life in this sparkling and witty production...huge energy and verve”

**** The Stage


"This was a most light-hearted and fast moving production with never a dull moment but with acting second to none." Eastern Daily Press


"..this feisty production captured the essence of the novel while refusing to get bogged down in the fine detail which so often derails many stage adaptations of novels." East Anglian Daily Times
