Let's start with some reviews first...
The Woodlanders, 1991
"...the performances are as intricately detailed, and as powered, as in a cosy auditorium...a stroll back through time into another, earthier world. You'll be enchanted."
- The Guardian (Robin Thornber).
"A fantastically good script by actor/playwright Simon Corble, newly updated from that first performed in 1992. He obviously knows and loves the original poem and his lovingly crafted verse version preserves both the alliteration and the north midlands dialect in places, without ever sacrificing clarity or drama. Truly an inspiring feat, and one that almost moved me to tears by the final quatrain. " - Andrea Hopkins, Daily Info Oxford. - The 2014, heavily revised version for indoor stage. Andrea is a theatre reviewer and highly regarded author on medieval romance.
The Hound of the Baskervilles 1995 - 2007
"The language seems to live and be real...a wonderful balance between the dramatic and the humour and the eccentricity…see The Hound of the Baskervilles…it was tremendous…a terrific evening!"
The 39 Steps - the original 1996 script
- City Life (Emma Unsworth)
