Scarlet Pimpernel Reviews

"I really enjoyed the show and the evening. The actors played their (many) parts well and achieved a very good balance between dramatic tension and comedy. I loved the visible sound effects! The Compères were very good at linking acts and keeping the audience actively engaged."

"I thought the play was brilliant, another triumph, performed with glee and gusto! I've loved everything the Players have done since I started coming, always great entertainment and value for money. What I especially love is that by coming to see a player regardless of the show, I'm getting to see a wide variety of genres that I might otherwise not have chosen."
