Reviews

A real fun piece of theatre, with many laugh out loud moments, the production will leave you feeling smiley and thoroughly entertained, as the late great Bob Marley would say, ‘Let’s get together and feel alright’.

Nikki Cotter Hull for Opening Night

It’s a sitcom style script, accessible, and funny, packed full of humor and supportive relationships. Consistently well acted, and with convincing characters, it’s a piece that’s effectively put together and well directed.

The  cast are uniformly excellent, each little vignette is both hilarious, yet moving.  The action flows smoothly from one group to the other.  The audience was entranced throughout.

On behalf of my colleagues at The University of Manchester, this is to say ‘Thank you!’ for a brilliant performance yesterday at the afternoon segment of the Professional Services Leaders Conference.  It was an enjoyable yet thought provoking event and feedback has been great.

Thank you so much for bringing the performance to the Contact Theatre for Manchester staff and local community. It was such an energising and thought-provoking performance by you and your brilliant cast and direction. The audience had a fantastic night and I think there was so much appreciation for the heart and humour.

Just to say how much I enjoyed the play on Saturday - it was great fun and I could see some characters developing there for a sit com.

Writer, Nicola Gardner, plays larger than life receptionist/manager, Patience, who is a pure joy. She swaggers and sways, is feline and vampish and full of sassy personality. She addresses the audiences and flirts outrageously. She shops at international shops. (Netto, Lidl and Aldi.) They call her the Black Marilyn Monroe and to prove this, she performs a seductive and breathy “Happy Birthday, Mr President” on a reluctant and decidedly uncomfortable caretaker, which is a show stealing moment. (Whoever “they” are, they’re right: she really is a black Marilyn Monroe.) Nicola is also a stand-up comedian, which really shows. She has great rapport with the audience and huge confidence
