Audience Feedback for my Shows

Project Juno 

‘Having a keen interest in astronomy and space exploration I found myself embarrassed that I didn’t know the story of Helen Sharman who was the first Briton in space. Rachael Halliwell brought the compelling story of this woman to life in her one woman show at the Arts Theatre. Rachael’s performance was so authentic. I really felt I was living this story through Helen Sharman’s eyes. My take away was to come out feeling inspired and more motivated to take a chance on those dreams that I thought were unattainable.’

‘Project Juno- what an epic treat! Travelling through Sheffield to Space. A real adventure and a must see.’

Deirdre & Me

At first glance Deirdre is a light comedy following the obsession of Susan White with Deirdre Barlow but with a hint of bullying and Susans naivety and ability to navigate the outside world. It tells a darker more upsetting tale of loneliness. Rachael Halliwell’s insightful writing and emotive performance takes the audience on a journey of tears,laughter and guilt. A magnificent piece of work.’

Rebecca Milner (after seeing the show at Harrogate Theatre)

‘Deirdre and me was such a spectacular piece to witness. Seeing the emotions, the sense of isolation and humanity in what is so often considered the vacuum of television and shining a light in the hidden parts of our society; the isolation that many experience. It was also wonderful to see a piece created by a woman expressing a female character that wasn’t about objectifying her but to connect to her inner experience.’

Room 253 

‘As a fan of thrillers and originally from Harrogate, I was excited to see that there was a play about Agatha Christie’s famous disappearance to the town. It was presented as a radio play with the actors in full costume and reading their lines into an old microphone. There was even someone on stage doing all the sound effects. We really enjoyed it. ‘
