The Chester Mystery Plays
★★★★The Guardian: "Vividly and intelligently rewritten."
The Observer: "An extraordinary fusion of scripture and social commentary."
The Chester Chronicle: "The 2013 production of the Chester Mystery Plays took some big risks but they have paid off with one of the most ambitious, memorable and thrilling presentations since the cycle was revived in 1951...In achieving this feat, writer Stephanie Dale’s multi-toned and many-layered adaptation reminds us that while the Bible is a sacred text, it also happens to tell one hell of a great story."
A Time to Keep
★★★★The Guardian: "This is theatre at its fundamental level: a shared, imaginative experience, communicated with winning passion."
