Touched - Review Round Up

Friday 24th February 2017

“Authentic, bittersweet drama performed by a stellar cast” ★★★★

The Stage continues to write that “the characters are beautifully and individually drawn” and acknowledge that Sandra is “a demanding role that McClure – making her professional stage debut – rises to magnificently.”

“Vicky McClure is vital and expressive in the part [of Sandra]”

Whatsonstage also praises the “splendidly vibrant (and often amusing) performance from Aisling Loftus”

“Exquisite… A beguiling journey into the past” ★★★★

The Daily Mail review comments that “McClure is, as ever, an actress you can’t take your eyes off“ and there is “fine acting throughout the company.”

“A true homecoming for a landmark home front drama”

The Times

“Possibly one of the biggest regional shows in the country”

British Theatre Guide

“Acting is excellent”

Nottingham Post

“Grabs the heart and the head and refuses to let either go” ★★★★★

East Midlands Theatre goes on to applaud the set design: “With the multi-faceted set designs of exteriors and domestic/workplace interiors set designer Jamie Vartan creates visually eloquent spaces for the drama to slowly unfold.”

“Touchingly thought provoking”

Left Lion says “McClure’s Sandra leaps out at you unawares, shifting from quiet melancholy into despair as we explore the hidden lives of ordinary women whose own grave and true feelings have been lost to history.”

“A historical masterpiece” 8/10

Impact Magazine

“The final image, aligning Sandra’s trauma with the (seen and unseen) ravages of war, is striking.”

It’s Much More writes that with “fantastic writing, production and direction, you cannot fail to be Touched”
