It is always a pleasure to welcome a new, talented writer.
Amateur Stage, June 2004
A well-crafted script. . . (will) appeal to the family audience with plenty of slapstick and one liners." - Scene, May 2004 "Panto (The Magic Shoes) went very well. Completely sold out both nights which surprised me since it wasn't one of the traditional stories! Cast liked the script very much and felt very comfortable with it. Perhaps you could pass that on to Mr Burgess! Audience reaction has been very positive also.
