REVIEWS

 

"This hilarious play, set on two floors of a Victorian house right next to the mainline station, needs not only perfect comic timing from its cast, but a convincing light and sound plot. And here the company excels. Director Peter Wintle also (once again) designed a soundtrack full of trains arriving and departing and the general shaking and creaking they cause the house, and James Linham’s dramatic lighting brought the locomotives almost inside the Strode Theatre.

 

... The Ladykillers sets a very high standard for the anniversary year, which continues with Much Ado About Nothing in November.."

 

"This Noises Off is huge fun, a tribute to the skills not only of the cast but the brilliant set designers – Bob Price, Mike Kempton and Phil Elliss – and their stage crew. It’s quite something to create a revolve for a smallish stage, and one that allows such vigorous action both from the “front” and backstage in this riotous comedy."

 

"... Street Theatre stalwarts Elaine Morgan, delightfully decorative in scanty underwear most of the time as the detached Brooke Ashton, John McGrouther as a highly neurotic Frederick Fellowes, the wonderful Elaine Hayne as a very comfortable and comforting Belinda Blair, and Bruce Borquin as the charmingly deaf old stager Selsdon Mowbray. In support were Kevin Hardacre as poor long-suffering Tim Allgood and Charlotte Hide as dear hardworking Poppy."

"Any production of this play depends on exceptional accents from its performers, and you might think that would be a hard task for west country amateurs, but Dennis Barwell’s company have nailed it to perfection.

Of course it’s comedy, of course it’s surrealism, but the ending (in the hands of this excellent company) is truly poignant."

Phoebe Rees Award Winner

"Street Theatre gave an excellent reading of the Wilde classic, demonstrating again the versatility of the group."

Phoebe Rees Award Winner

"All ten members of the cast, including the young Boris Findlay as the neighbourhood child, put in memorable work in this compelling drama. See it if you can"

Phoebe Rees Award Winner

"Street Theatre take on these challenging four acting parts with gusto and bravado, and highly professional standards, with just the right level of Brechtian alienation ..."

Phoebe Rees Award Winner

"Peter Wintle’s cast at Street carried it off to perfection, the production cleverly and simply set and subtly lit (by James Linham) and performed as in its original production, with an “audience” on stage, from which the protagonists emerge to perform their roles, and the “horses” a constant presence."

Phoebe Rees Award Winner

"This was a moving, funny and touching evening of theatre, well paced with some beautifully acted characters.  Director Lois Harbinson should be proud of her production and in particular of her six "Calendar Girls".
