There have been some lovely reviews for House Guest, the play that Victoria Porter and Neil James have been in at Pokesdown.
The Daily Echo wrote: “Wadlan and [Victoria] Porter are excellent as the distraught couple. There are strong performances too from the supporting cast, particularly Neil James as Inspector Burford”.
Scene One Plus admired the company too: “These guys delivered every line with perfect audibility; they varied pitch, pace, pause and inflection with consummate skill and […] had us on the edge of our seats”.
The final play of the season is Murder Mistaken which Victoria and Neil are also both in and we wish them well with it. http://shelleytheatre.co.uk/
Victoria Porter and Neil James are both in Bournemouth as part of the London Repertory Players summer rep season at the Shelley Theatre. http://shelleytheatre.co.uk/
They are currently rehearsing the Francis Durbridge play House Guest which opens on Thursday 22nd August.
They will then start rehearsing Murder Mistaken by Janet Green which opens on Thursday 29th August.
We are sure that they will have great success with both plays and are looking forward to seeing them, and perhaps having an ice cream at the seaside!
Carrie Hill’s show in Edinburgh, Shakespearience, is getting rave reviews from some of the most difficult to please audience members – children!
“It was so, so funny” – Harry, aged 6
“It was fantastically amazing!” – Sylvia, aged 9
“I loved the show and thought you were all fantastic” – aged 5
“It was the best fringe show we have seen!” – aged 7
Victoria Porter is in the first play of the London Repertory Players 2019 season at the Shelley Theatre near Bournemouth. http://shelleytheatre.co.uk/
It’s three of the Talking Heads monologues by the wonderful Alan Bennett and Victoria performs the piece in which Maggie Smith originally played the lonely vicar’s wife: Bed Among the Lentils.
Scene One Plus said: “Victoria Porter’s portrayal was seamless. Everything she did, every mannerism, every reflective pause … took us on a journey. She had me laughing out loud and crying … brilliant.”
Bournemouth Echo said: “The pieces demand first class acting, and they get it from these players. Exceptional performances.”
Victoria will be appearing in two other plays later in the season, Francis Durbridge’s House Guest and Murder Mistaken by Janet Green. Neil James will be joining her for these thrillers and we look forward to seeing them both.
