“Absolutely fantastic! The very best bit of drama I have experienced for years. The professionalism of your young actors was exemplary”
“I had the pleasure of attending the dress rehearsal yesterday afternoon and would like to congratulate the company, director, actors/actresses and guides for putting on such a fine performance.. I thought the cast played their parts so well and the use of period costumes added to the quality output. The use of the original site was a great idea, (how wonderful it would be if a permanent setting could be at this site ! ) The use of recordings, head -sets, contemporary film and piano playing was well balanced. The organisation of the event was very professional and efficient and a good understanding of such an important subject was well covered in under 2 hours. The movement of people around the premises was also very well handled given the number of people attending and confined sizes of areas . The providing of refreshments, by the suitably attired Nippy ladies, was very thoughtful. It was a most informative and educating production and it was pleasing to see such a wide ranging audience including many young and non-Jewish people there.
