"Vividly and intelligently written."

The Guardian. Chester Mystery Plays.★★★★

Stephanie Dale continues to have the privilege of working with some fantastic organisations and theatre companies and has written many of the U.K's large-scale community plays. The shows involve hundreds of participants, both on and offstage. All of the projects are managed by professional creative teams. The plays are written and created for the community and  staged by members of the community.

"This is theatre at its fundamental level, shared, imaginative experience, communicated with a winning passion."
