The production never flags for a moment-and encompasses so much material(even a reference to the much maligned Lionel Bart musical- "Twang")-we are treated to song and dance from "Barbara Windsor and an in-depth interview with Shelagh Delaney discussing her hit play- "A Taste of honey". Gemskii's style is intimate, engrossing and utterly compelling-one feels one really has spent an hour in the great Lady's company by the end of the piece. She has succeeded on all levels to do what Littlewood intended to be truthful, thought provoking and fluid in delivery. If ever an audience left having had an encounter with it's protagonist-this is it ! Catch Gemskii's brilliant performance wherever you can!

Draper Hall is an intimate venue, in the heart of Elephant & Castle with the kindest staff that make you feel incredibly welcome... the entire organisation and execution of the event was exceptionally done.
The Box is a performance that will remain with you for days, weeks or maybe even years. I am still speaking about it to everyone, and so will you.
