Here's what the audience/reviewers said.....

"Both writing and acting are well observed and Bartholomew keeps up a strong rapport with her audience." The Stage

"Bartholomew's one-woman show is hysterical!" Mariella Frostrup, BBC2

"This monologue was equally funny and so short that the end came as a humorous surprise. Should go far. Er....not the coach; but the performer certainly. Hating to make comparisons but perhaps a latter-day Joyce Grenfell". Mike Dean

'Highly entertaining, clever dialogue." Sam Barham (Visa)
