“Extremely moving and emotional and had the audience in its grasp the whole way through... Could quite possibly be one of the most important pieces of theatre to come out of London this year.”
(West End Wilma)
“Thrilling. Has charm and modesty... There is also a singing surprise in the second act which I won't spoil by revealing here but you will want to applaud long and hard. Beyond the Fence delivers political history of peaceful resistance with a human face, thanks I suspect to the dedication of its curators.”
(Lizzie Loveridge, Curtain Up)
