Excerpt from the Shoreham Herald Review: “As soon as the curtain opens and you see the incredible set, you know The Corn is Green is going to be good.
“Adjudicator Jane Collins described it as a wonderful production, after last night’s performance, and said she found it very moving, praising director Susanne Crosby for her approach.” Read the review here
Excerpt from the NODA Review: “This was a huge, multi-layered, compelling play, masterfully or rather, with the play in mind, ‘mistressfully’ directed by Susanne Crosby. It was engrossing, moving, funny and thought-provoking and the acting was superb.” Read the review here
