“Go see Tara O’Connor lead Progress Theatre in a strong production of a story of a woman finding her strength ..” - Explore Reading

“ .. a lovingly crafted production by Adrian Tang ... This is compelling theatre, don’t miss it.” - The Whitley Pump

“Progress Theatre should be applauded for shining a light on this subject [gender politics] (especially so close to International Women’s Day) ...” - The Wokingham Paper

“This well-paced production should please and engage the audience, but it will also provoke viewers to consider power struggles within relationships and within wider society.” - Henley Standard

“ ... there is a clear vision: an assertive directorial stance from director-producer Adrian Tang, and some bold choices by leading player Tara O’Connor, as Nora.” - The Play’s The Thing

 "...all-round great performance, of the lead, Tara O’Connor. An emotionally complex character, Nora is hard to nail, but she did an excellent job of bringing the young woman, in all her struggles and uncertainty, to life." - The Spark
