We had a very enthusiastic audience, and some great reviews and feedback afterwards. The Oxford Daily Information called the images in our show ‘exquisite’, and ended with the lines:
‘Anneliese Emmans Dean is a gifted poet, performer and communicator who deserves to be more widely known. Those children who were lucky enough to attend this performance will probably spend the following weekend writing poems, hunting bugs and amazing their friends with their new-found knowledge.’
And Helen Jezzard emailed me afterwards:
‘Thank you for inspiring my children [aged 6 and 4] to take an excited and hands-on interest in the insect world under their noses. They both came back from the show bouncing with excitement and have been talking about it ever since.’
Thank you to all the staff at Oxford Playhouse for making us so welcome. (And for posting my hat back to me, which I left there inadvertently!)
And thank you to Sandra and Denis for their hospitality!
