Show Reviews:

Exploring Exeter review of Brave Bold Drama's production 'Alf the Highwayman' (2017):

'The story is told with incredibly clever props and beautiful catchy tunes . . . I love it a trillion times more than the Cbeebies pantos I’ve endured since motherhood. It is a beautifully written and performed piece of children’s theatre . . . The characters are so believable and endearing, wonderful accents and expressions transport you into Alf’s world . . . It is a great moral tale with humility and hilarity and it gave me great warm fuzzy feeling .'

Bradley Stoke Radio, Bristol review of Brave Bold Drama's production 'Alf the Highwayman' (2017):

'A wonderful and engaging show . . . great performances from the two involved, Paul Lawless and Gill Simmons.'

Weston-Super-Mum review of Brave Bold Drama's production 'Alf the Highwayman' (2017):
