The Heiress

“I’ve heard it said, often, that a bad dress rehearsal means a good first night, and vice versa. If we’re to believe that, then the opening night of THE HEIRESS at the Churchill Theatre in Bromley last Tuesday clearly followed an excellent dress rehearsal.” – The Stage, 5th March 1992

“An excellent play very well presented in a magnificently detailed early Victorian setting is having well-deserved audience support at the Churchill, Bromley.” – The Stage, 12th March 1992
