Every age group was there and from every part of Melbourne. It was packed. I recommend it” Peter Clarke, ABC Radio; “I was reminded that I had seen some outstanding work (in 2004)…and although the productions varied hugely in terms of cost from a large scale work like Urinetown and Night Letters… to a sofa bed in the back room of The Stork Hotel, it was not the money spent that mattered, but the sheer quality of the work, the writing, the directing, and the acting.” Helen Thomson.
