Audience Feedback

"We were lucky enough to see The Lovesong of Alfred J Hictchcock on Thursday evening, in Tideswell. It was an excellent evening and an absolutely stunning piece of theatre. The production managed to create a really strong atmosphere even in the school hall. The play took you on a journey into a unique, creative and troubled mind. The acting was just superb. Of course, Martin Miller was outstanding managing to convey passion, anger, fear and tenderness, and stir feelings of compassion but also loathing (?not quite the right word) in the audience. But, Martin Miller was very well supported by the other cast members. Rudkin's writing , with the long monologues and the changing emotions, demands much of the actors and they certainly fulfilled those demands. All-in-all a truly memorable evening and it's a tribute to the play and the production that we are still talking about what it must be to have a creative mind such as Alfred Hitchcock's (maybe a play about Stephen King next?!!). Thank you to all concerned: to New Perspectives for staging the play and bringing it out on tour to small, local venues, and to Live and Local for the excellent job you do in supporting the arts and bringing high-quality entertainment to rural areas" Ann and Alan Calladine

"I had wonderful time last night. What a wonderful production! Exquisitely done. It was compelling, richly poetic theatre, and I'm still carrying around with me today certain lines and phrases. The performances were a delight too" Kevin Harvey - Audience member at Curve, Theatre Leicester

"Great preview performance. Hitchcock's famous scenes brought to life through his fantastical descriptions alone-perfect for the stage" Sophie Smith - Northants Touring Arts promoter
"Exemplary acting & script brought together by the creative team" Rosanna Sloan - Audience member at Curve Theatre, Leicester

"We have just returned from seeing The Lovesong of Alfred J Hitchcock performed at Pattingham Village Hall. We enjoyed a brilliant performance from Martin Miller portraying Alfred Hitchcock. Alma as mother was frightening and believable. We wish you all the very best of luck as you continue to perform an excellent play" Pauline Kirk, Pattingham Village Hall.
