Cotton Girls

Glamorgan Drama League Moderator's report

- Glammies entry, at Glamorgan Festival

... "It was very enjoyable to watch and was acted extremely well."

... "Overall this was an enjoyable piece of theatre, well directed and believably acted. Credit goes to all involved."

Graham Williams, Swansea Evening Post (Wales Final Festival, Taliesin Theatre) ..."the second offering, Unknown's Cotton Girls, was - for my money - the best of the three plays: a three-hander, set on a ferris wheel in an American funfair in 1959, it featured tremendously engaging performances and characterisations, with some acidic one-liners and nicely observed mannerisms and accents."
