Comment #1: From Coward to Cats

Publication: Wick’s Newsletter No. 14 – Issued March 1988
Author: Betty Dawes

“What a success this was despite having been put together very quickly and rehearsed over a very limited period of time. My sincere thanks to EVERYONE who was either in it, backstage, front of house or in the lighting box, box office or workshop. I really appreciate support I was given.

I still can’t get over how popular it was with the audiences – I’m still getting people coming up to me and saying how very much they enjoyed it. I will give serious thought to From Coward to Cats No. 2 or even From Cats to Coward – but don’t tell my cast – they might emigrate! ”
