Pig Stew – the reviews!

After a nervous wait the cast, crew and I are thrilled to read a raft of fabulous reviews! Here are the latest ones:

From the Newcastle Journal (in the print version we’re reviewed on the same page as Alan Bennett!) 

From Spike Mike is Breaking a Leg (online theatre reviewer)

From Jesmond Local (an innovative online hyperlocal newspaper staffed largely by students from Newcastle University media department)

Theatre – it’s in the blood!

Strange that Pig Stew is being performed at the People’s Theatre. Turns out some (fairly distant) relatives of mine founded the theatre a hundred years ago!  Ya see, it’s all in the blood :)

Read all about it and the run up to Pig Stew in the Newcastle Journal

Great opening night last night. Here’s to the cast and crew breaking some trotters for the rest of the run.
