REVIEWS

God's Waiting Room - Rosemary Branch Theatre

“A beautifully wrought hour.”

“A beautifully balanced and well constructed play, accessibly examining the emotionally explosive topics of death, family relationships and sibling rivalries in a way which made me laugh and cry at the same time. It reminded me of the plays of Mike Leigh where strong characterisation and humour examines everyday elements of our lives in a profound and insightful way.” — Anwen Griffiths

God's Waiting Room - Camden Etcetera Theatre

“A brave, and moving piece of writing. Moments of intimacy catch you unawares amid the humour. Beautifully mixing laughs with unbearable pain.”

“Karen Bartholomew's writing reminds me of what Terry Johnson does so well … swift turns of humour and sadness. Her deftness is to be admired. As are the performances which take you into the saddest of waiting rooms, and lovingly holds your hand.” — Ruth D'Silva

“Both writing and acting are well observed and Neville keeps up a strong rapport with her audience.” — The Stage

“Neville's one-woman show is hysterical!” — Mariella Frostrup, BBC2

“Neville has a bright eye for what, in the early seventies, passed for neat ideas and natty outfits, dressing her set with the kitschest of tastes and peppering her monologue with some great one-liners…” — Scotsman

Mozart with the Morrisons

“Refreshing dialogue and lots of very funny moments: look out for the car park clamping! I can’t wait to see this play in the full production it deserves. ” — Peter Thompson - Player Playwrights

Comedy Pantomime - Dick Durrant Show

“A long overdue to note to thank you for your script writing and acting skills! The bespoke script you created for the recent Company pantomime we produced hit exactly the right mark with a great mix of classic panto gags mixed with a good deal of personalized comedy about their company and their people. It was very well thought through and ensured the panto was really well received by colleagues and guests alike. You and your fellow actors then really delivered in terms of engaging with the audience and keeping the whole thing on track. Thank you again and I am sure we will be using your skills in this area again before too long.” — Paul Farris, Director, Paul Farris Entertainment
