" Props and Anvil have worked wonders over the years, both in the diversity of their productions & the depths of the commitment of the young cast.
It’s wonderful to see plays being presented with a freshness and energy and with an original artistic direction that would be the envy of any
And all of this in a really difficult economic climate.
I warmly congratulate Anne and her company on weathering the storms – often literally – to bring such quality to audiences around the country.”
