Audience Feedback

"Excellent encapsulation of the book and lives - inventive, imaginative presentation - overall very moving, reading the text of what it could be like as a GP" E A Baily

"So powerful - brilliant - so moving" anonymous

"Simply brilliant!" James Hemsly

"Thoughtful and considered, interesting techniques with sound, silence, props and imagery. A book I love as a new GP and a worthy tribute to the fascinating relationship between subject and artist and doctor and patient. Thank you" Hannah Pedley

"Food for thought! Powerful. Realistic. Very well done. Might need the book now. Excellent performing!" Chris Weatherhead

"Wonderful performances and staging. Bravo!" Emma Sutherland

"Powerful narrative" anonymous

"Excellent performance by both. A reflective insight. I will be buying the book as a current practising healthcare worker" Sue Rerene

"I knew the book, but this performance will take me back to it. I loved it. It makes me think about the changing face of medicine and all that is timeless about it too. Thank you" anonymous

"Excellent verbatim piece. The NHS of old - a goal for the future. Held the audiences attention right through. Well done and all the best of the rest of the Fringe" Tanna Jamalamadake

"Lovely! Very thought provoking, lovely blend of music and images. Thank you" anonymous

"I read the first edition as a young GP - the production captured the highs and lows of being a GP and the cost to the family and the person themselves" Steward Baily

"Wonderfully creative and professionally done. A journey of John's life emotionally and factually told" Elaine and Dave Bradley
