We’re well into our North West tour now, having visited Salford’s The Lowry and the Square Chapel, Halifax, moving onto Liverpool’s Lantern Theatre later this week. After a slightly scary start with one of the main actors, Brian Gorman, falling ill just before the shows opened at The Lowry, the tour has gone from strength to strength.
“Writer Ella Carmen Greenhill goes to a lot of trouble to build a credible background to the story of one damaged individual trying to heal another.” – David Cunningham, thepublicreviews
“Central to the play is Hannah Keeley’s commanding performance as May. Endearing and bouncy, her portrayal is at its strongest when the story delves into memories of her trauma and she threatens to drown within these dark memories. A scene between her and Greenwood on a waltzer is particularly effective.” – The Fiction Stroker
A Lot of it About
“With its quick and witty script, A lot of It About is a thoughtful piece of theatre. (4*)” – Joanna Ing, whatsonstage
“The humour that sometimes permeates plays dealing with homosexuality as a topic can feel very forced, but here it flows naturally. Director Alex Shepley juggles this humour and drama and coaxes strong performances to produce an affecting story that builds towards a conclusion that for once is laden with hope. Thoroughly recommended.” – The Fiction Stroker
We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who’s come to see the shows so far, and a particular thank you to the reviewers for your feedback. If you haven’t seen Broken & A Lot of it About yet, you’ve still got time to catch us at the Lantern Theatre in Liverpool (10-11 May), Oldham Coliseum (14 May) and the Pavilion Arts Centre in Buxton (8 June).
