Reviews for past productions


“OffRoading is a rocky and hilarious ride… match(es) quality writing with outstanding acting… Threadbare Theatre Company… has the Dream Team of Oxted’s Jim Alexander and newcomer Felicity Jolly to achieve the perfect blend… So well written by Linger… there are few dry eyes in the house… Jim Alexander and Felicity Jolly are a perfect fit, a terrific combination of humour and pathos and they have the benefit of an outstanding piece of writing” County border news

Shirley Valentine

Ruth Redman is flawless in this classic one-woman-show, at turns heart-wrenching and heart-warming, and fearless throughout… the light counterpoints in the script are heightened beyond expectation by superb comic timing… Redman delivers a two-hour masterclass in the art of soliloquy. All told, one of the deepest and bravest performances I have seen in years. There are still tickets available for Threadbare Theatre Company’s Friday and Saturday’s shows – you would be privileged to get hold of one.” The Argus

The Alchemist

“Beautifully brought to life in a modern context by director Lucy Linger…a roaringly funny evenings entertainment. Don’t miss it…” Camden New Journal

“A funny, thought provoking couple of hours” The Metro

 “Lucy Linger’s direction keeps the play crackling along, skilfully manipulating a cast of 8 playing 12 roles between them,” City Islington Gazette

“It would take a hard-hearted audience member not to chuckle at some point during this amiable production.” The Stage

 Such Art, Such Beauty

“Such Art, Such Beauty – and such fun…a witty, entertaining, view of three very different ladies…a clever example of the bitching and backbiting to be found within the ranks of any opera or theatrical company when the art gives way to basic human emotions…. a welcome addition to the Threadbare Theatre Company’s roster of plays performed in the pub.” County border news

“Makes for a fun and indupitably well made hour of operatic fancy.” Time Out

“A real hoot from start to finnish” North London Papers

Lingering Voices
