2nd May 1997 Production Photos 034

We're made up with the review of 2ND MAY 1997 from The Watford Observer. Critic Melanie Dakin reckoned it was "utterly enlivening" and gave it the full five stars.

Melanie hung around for the post-show Q&A the night she reviewed the show, and reports some audience comments:

“It’s somewhere we’ve all been - it’s very beautifully done and also very intimate”

“I was riveted to every word; it was almost televisual"

“There’s something wrong with our society that we can’t make more plays like this”

Melanie's own opinion was:

"Jack Thorne’s utter mastery of the human drama are what make this play so surprising, so entertaining, utterly enlivening and a piece of theatrical enlightenment that deserves to run and run."

Thanks Melanie. We're thrilled you enjoyed it.
