Feedback for #BrazenStrap

 

The show is up. Two dates down, one more to go. The journey has not been without its hiccups but all was alright on the night (or matinee). I have yet to go through the feedback forms (on to do list today), though a quick glance says that this show appears to have struck a chord. There’s some really encouraging feedback on social media:

His Excellency the Irish Ambassador Daniel Mulhall came along and had this to say on Twitter post show:

@DanMulhall
Well done to Irish playwright @SueHealy & cast of That Brazen Electric Strap of a Wan. A well-constructed, sharply-scripted, enjoyable play.

And the director Shevaun Wilder:
@ShevaunWilder
Saw great performance of new comic tragic ‪#‎Irish‬ ‪#‎play‬ ‘sans decor’ @KingsHeadThtr today ‘That Brazen Electric Strap of a Wan’ by Sue Healy

From the actor Corinne Wicks:

Funny, poignant and moving new play with no set and a fantastic cast That Brazen Electric Strap of a Wan (yep that’s title!) – @corinnewicks –

Powerful and funny new writing – @popaganda

From TripAdvisor: “What a performance ! This funny pacy short play had a full house when we were there for the opening yesterday.
If you find yourself in London on 14th or 19th – see if there are any tickets left. It is a touching story of Irish life, youth, ageing and the need to have fun. 4 great actors and a nice,taut text.
Hope it gets picked up by the telly and radio. I see from the website it is shortlisted for a prize.”

The final show is on Thurs. 19th at 3pm. Come along!!! http://www.kingsheadtheatre.com
