Measure for Measure for Manly
"As with all good stories, it is splintered, suggestive, funny, thought-provoking, disturbing and possibly not entirely true."
by
Shakespeare
Star of the Sea Theatre, Manly

Arcadia
"This is a work of great intensity and it is beautifully performed."
by
Tom Stoppard

The Ponzi Inheritance
"On stage there is a ladder. Itís in the shape of an A as ladders are. Itís the beginning. Itís about (social) climbing. Itís about building (wealth). Itís a pyramid shape just like the infamous Ponzi scheme that young Edward is about to face."

Heterodex

Zenith Theatre, Chatswood

Hitchcock Blonde
"always adventurously eclectic in its selection of productions, has excelled itself with Terry Johnson’s Hitchcock Blonde, a speculative, pseudo-psychoanalytic probing of why one particular gentleman preferred blondes."
by
Terry Johnson
Star of the Sea Theatre, Manly

The Vortex
"It was a good production, witty, entertaining, fab dresses (Marisa Newnes). It really captured the gaiety of the era and although there was much standing around talking it didn't feel static at all."
by
Noel Coward
Star of the Sea Theatre, Manly

Present Murder
"Christie's writing is always pithy, with a delicious sense of the comic, amidst the tragic; with her characters, it seems, always buffoonish, in just the right measure. Morris, while teetering on showy self-indulgence, has done a wonderful job of matching the undersung, naughty, sometimes haughty, wit of Christie"

Agatha Christie

2007
Love dot Com
"It takes an affectionate look at actors, travellers, obsessive compulsives, long term friendships, toy-boys, pornographers, transsexuality and other matters of sexual bio-diversity, internet dating, lost loves and Central Coast plumbers."
by
Victor Kline
Tap Gallery, Darlinghurst.

Fallen Angels
"This isnít an intellectual play. In the fool world, it would be the equivalent of a cheeseburger; not too nutritious but fun to eat. It all makes for an extremely amusing night out."
by
Noel Coward
Star of the Sea Theatre, Manly

A Winter's Tale
"what an emotional journey and so wonderful to watch!"
by
Shakespeare
Star of the Sea Theatre, Manly

Dangerous Liaisons
"The concept of the 'chess' costuming was brilliant and all the characters were spot-on."
by
Christopher Hampton
Star of the Sea Theatre, Manly

2006
Love Play
"the script, direction and acting were stunning and I was captivated throughout"
by
Moira Buffini
Mardi Gras,
Tap Gallery, Darlinghurst

Wildest Dreams
"skeletons rattling out of closets left, right and centre-stage. The prospect of facing personal demons is teased-out masterfully by author and cast, who seem to have grasped the intent and nuances as if AA himself were lurking behind the curtain. Are these monsters better out, than in? As in life, it's somewhat questionable."
by
Alan Ayckbourn

Cry Wolf

"Wolves, war and women: a dangerous combination "
by
Deb Mulhall
Star of the Sea Theatre, Manly
The Hollow

"First and foremost, Christie is an unapproachably outstanding storyteller; indeed, the benchmark by which all other 'mystery murderesses' are measured, I should think. Beyond that, she displays considerable wit, without flaunting it. "
by
Agatha Christie
Star of the Sea Theatre, Manly
