Went to see A Different Way Home this week. It was exceptional - funny and moving. John O’Connell delivered two amazing monologues- an incredible feat of memory an incredibly engaging performance. Well directed too. Lovely bar area.

This was an exceptional production! I think John O'Connell connected with every audience member with his towering performance. The nostalgic tales of the lives of Leslie and Maureen developed into both a very moving and a very funny production. Congratulations Andrew Close, John O'Connell and...More

A stunning solo performance by an accomplished actor. Anyone who ever had a sibling will find something in this acutely observed drama that reminds them of their own relationships. It is a poignant tale but not without humour, and should warm even the coldest heart....More

Not reviewing any one show but the company puts on 4 -5 shows a year and are very good. The theatre is only small but all seats have a good view and always tea, coffee or something a little stronger available.
