Louise Porter as Sedge in the Oaklands Youth Theatre, Southampton, production of NO PLACE FOR A GIRL

by some who have already performed this show:-
"I think it is a fantastic, fresh approach to drama for young people. My group learnt so much from doing it ... they were not at all keen when they first saw the script - I don't think they could see the end result. However most of them came to like the play and were greatly boosted by the audience on the first night. I cannot remember a time when so many members of the audience have made a point of coming to see me after a show and commenting what a fantatstic play it was."
Bolton, Lancs.
"It was an excellent play to start our theatre company with: full of energy and pace. The audience loved it and it was accessible to all age groups." Anna Moorhouse, Cromwell Community College.
