“This is stirring theatre, presented with a level of flair and sophistication that makes you feel you have been present at the nativity of a whole host of new stars of the musical stage.” 

“Paul Hegarty's potent production offers sweepingly impressive ensemble acting as well as delicate individual performances.” “Rhiannon Douty is a terrific Cathy, voice soaring, face radiant with simple, unquestioning faith.”

“Dom Hodson displays a saturnine intensity and a considerable vocal gift.”
