PRODUCTION PHOTOGRAPHS

 

REVIEWS

" ... Neil Lawford's zippy production has in Graham Hoadly a revue artist to covet - convincing as male dancer and senile cricket follower … "

Nicholas de Jongh: The Guardian

" … Neil Lawford's snappy production has Graham Hoadly equally resplendent in dancer's tunic and cricketing blazer …"

Ann McFerren: Time Out

" … The biggest laughs are won by … Graham Hoadly's skit on a languid ballet-dancer: 'I do a dance with a bubbil / Which is really a big balloon' … "

John Barber: The Daily Telegraph

" … 'Meet Me At The Gate' is a King's Head success up to the standard of 'Mr Cinders' from whose cast indeed come two of the surest and brightest members in this company of six: the genially waspish Graham Hoadly and the sharp and pretty Diana Martin who can also sing … "

Michael Ratcliffe: The Observer


" … Neil Lawford directs a stylish comic Graham Hoadly (excellent at prim distress) … "

Martin Hoyle: Financial Times

" … some of the targets are as relevant as they were half a century ago … camp dress designers determined to make women look ugly … a few black comedy skits written by Nicholas Phipps about a maiden aunt planning to throw a hand grenade during the Coronation of George VI have still retained their quirky humour and were well performed by Graham Hoadly … "

Milton Shulman: The Standard

" … the cast is composed of six energetic performers. Graham Hoadly primly recalls a naughty aunt … They are seen in quite a few combinations as they appear in a fast flow of sketches and songs, some of the best being 'Close of Play' with two ancient cricket fans lamenting the lapse of the game … the camp dress designers and the effete ballet dancer draped in pink with grapes. Mr Hoadly does make his dance 'with a bubbil' very comical … "
