Reviews and Feedback Feedback

A few Professionals in Drama were invited to read before publication, and the following are quoted in the cover blurb:

Jocelyn Lord, MA , LGSM, LLAM, ACSD, GODA

Janice Millar, ALAM, Drama Teacher, Skipton

An independent review was published by Amdram (the worldwide amateur drama website) in 2004. The link will take you to it .

Immediately the book was published we received the following feedback from magazine reviewers.

"I chuckled my way through much of it and sighed my way through parts of it. I smiled and enjoyed and read aloud those bits that were just too good to be smothered to oneself.”

Irene Dick, BA, MSc, Editor, The Speaker:www.the-ASC.org.uk

"Hidden Treasures' is an impressive addition to the bookshelves in the Three Counties. I like its sky-scape cover, which emphasizes the title, and the overall layout, making for an easy read – the professional touch.”

Dennis Bidwell, Feature-writer for Beds. County Life Magazine

The following review was received from a school-age student of drama who was given the book as a birthday present by her grandmother (a member of U3A). It is quoted here with the permission of the child and her family.

"You wanted me to review Hidden Treasures by Pip Parry. Here is what I thought of the plays:

All of them were very good but I especially like A Question of Dress because it was quite funny, and think that it would appeal to other children of my age. The other one I also love Family Feeling as I like saying the language all the family use apart for Millie who acted like Mum. I quite like the Mobile Phone one as it reminds my of my Nan who also has a mobile phone and wishes she had never got one!

I thought the plays were really well written and I really enjoyed them all.”

Laura Robinson (aged 11)

Supportive reviews have also been published in U3A News (the UK Magazine of the Third Age Trust), as well as the local Milton Keynes U3A newsletter: the newsletter of the Open Theatre Group; the Newsletter of STSD (the Society of Teachers of Speech and Drama); and others .
