Reviews

A Midsummer Night's Dream

'Murray Simon and Oliva Sewell were excellent as Demetrious and Hermia caught up in a spell weaved by Oberon.'

- The Argus

You can almost feel the audience willing her to win the love of the fey and slightly nerdy Demetrius, played by Murray Simon, who looks like a young Mathew Kelly

- Broadway baby

It is the Lovers who carry the show however and Maurice Humphrey's ,Murray Simon, Olivia Sewell and Alex Louise are equally confident, clear in their projection and diction and strong in their characterisation. Their energy is impressive...

- Remote Goat

Macbeth

Genuine Scot, Murray Simon, performs excellently, the essential but unrewarding roles of Lennox & Ross, hanger-on to one or other of the protagonists, & he is entirely effective in both parts.
