What the audience said ablout this production of Carrie's War at Sadler's Wells
"Carrie's War is one of my all-time favourite children's books. I'm sure this wonderfully imaginative and dramatic stage version will delight an entire new generation of children."
"It will be remembered by us both as a highlight of Christmas 2006"
Natasha Plowright, North London
"Thank you for the fantastic production of Carrie's War you put on. I thoroughly enjoyed it - I particularly liked the character of Nick. He amused me. I know what it feels like to be a younger brother."
David, North London
"I just wanted you to know that we had a thoroughly good time. Our party was 2 adults and 2 teenagers (girl 13 and boy 17) and we all found the play most entertaining, amusing and moving. Please pass our thanks to the production crew and to the superb cast whose sincerity, talent and clear pride in what they were doing shone through and made for a lovely experience."
"Just to let you know that I brought my daughters Alissa (11) and Fenella (7) to see Carrie's War and we thought it was brilliant! We had already enjoyed your portrayal of Anne of Green Gables a couple of years back, but this was really superb. We know the book quite well and have seen two BBC offerings over the years - your production topped it all, so thank you!"
"We all really enjoyed Carrie's War and it was such a pleasure seeing our and other children so absorbed in it. It was easily the highlight of our visit."
Gill Roberts, Wrexham
"But even more than my own absolute enjoyment was that of my students. They range from 10-16 and were utterly utterly enthralled. I wish you could have heard their comments as the story progressed - as Louise finally made her decision to meet the Captain, they sat behind me whispering "go on, go ON!!!". And they fell completely in love with Jonny. Nina Bawden must be thrilled!"
