John Simpkin

Wow what a cracking play last night. I really enjoyed it. So did everyone that I overheard talking about it.

Jenny May

With members of Team Marlowe smoothly completing the set changes, this production was a worthy tribute to Gil Townes, their late Chairman, and maintained the Players` reputation for quality presentations.

NODA

A hot summer evening is the perfect setting for this perennial romantic comedy of manners, performed impeccably by the Marlowe Players. A captivated audience hung on every word of this excellent production.
