It's a terrific play, outstandingly performed… Go and see it. It's brilliant
- Western Daily Press

Lotty is played by Eve Ponsonby, a highly-acclaimed stage actress whose credits include Harry Potter and The Cursed Child and Shakespeare in Love in the West End and A Midsummer Night’s Dream at Theatre Royal Bath.
