Shirley Valentine

”This was a production of exceptionally high standard by a company of whom we always expect the highest  standard… it’s a pity there isn’t an award for best Actress or best performance on the small scale touring circuit as I’d certainly nominate Sonia for it.”

Allan Cook – Promoter, Radyr and Morganstown Village Hall

‘A thoroughly enjoyable performance, fantastic acting, brought to life the character of Shirley Valentine perfectly. Thanks to the Pavilion for bringing such quality to our town.’

Aberystwyth Mon Amour

‘Original, off-the-wall and incredibly inventive…and very funny’

‘A brilliant night out at the theatre’

Ceredigion Herald


‘Aberystwyth Mon Amour is an intelligent and witty production, which the Lighthouse Theatre Company should be very proud of. A wonderfully bonkers plot and script, clever directing and production design, and a cast who all give top notch, straight-faced performances that really bring out the humour. Other comedy thrillers take note – this is how it should be done.’
