Rated 5 out of 5 by Deltiologist from A superb performance, despite the dampness! We attended this performance of Sense and Sensibility at Dunster Castle, had travelled 100 miles and stayed overnight in a local hotel so that we could watch the show. The forecast was for heavy rain, the wind was gusting, there was light rain before and during the performance but were the cast discouraged? Not a bit of it! The show must go on! The actors were determined, their acting was first-rate, their diction and enunciation were so clear I could hear every word, despite the erratic wind! There was humour, pathos, music, a wide variety of emotions - and the script was close to the original, especially regarding many of the speeches! I did feel for the ladies in their thin summer dresses - but they performed as if it was a balmy, sunny summer's eve - even when their mop caps were blown off!! All of the cast played at least two parts in the story, but they managed to change and keep in role whichever part they were playing. I think Elinor was portrayed magnificently - although my favourite was Mr Parker who added a touch of levity, causing me great difficulty in controlling my mirth! Mr. and Mrs. Jennings were both admirable to continue in role when drawing the raffle during the interval! All in all an excellent performance - well worth the journey and expense - and we'll certainly look out for more performances by this company!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Frances from Peter Pan but not quite enough fairy dust The setting was beautiful and the weather held! I have seen this theatre company before but unfortunately this time was not as good as expected. The voice projection wasn't brilliant and it was difficult to hear the character's a lot of the time. The performance started promptly enough at 5.30 but did not finish until 8pm with a 15 minute break. Also guests were allowed to choose where they picniced but there were no restrictions on chairs at the front which meant the view was often obscured. It was a lovely experience but in future a shorter show length for children's performances combined with 'furniture restrictions' would be beneficial.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Louflo from Outdoor theatre The play was an outdoor event in Liverpool held behind Liverpool town hall. Loved the small set and cast who retold the Sherlock story. Venue was a different and enjoyable experience. I would recommend to friends to book if the company visit the city again. Seating was provided which was great as we thought we had to take our own. Possibly could find a quieter outside venue in Liverpool, as the venue is so close to bars and restaurants, people enjoying the nightlife were a little interruptive towards the end of the play. But you can ignore these interruptions and it didn't ruin the overall experience of the play.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zena from Unexpectedly funny and uplifting play On a wonderful evening last night we saw Peter Pan by the chapter house company - I was worried from the appearance of the set that it was gong to be weak -- well how wrong I was - without giving anything away; the children gasped - the adults laughed and the weather played along - giving us all a glorious summer evening in front of a spectacular castle with a super play to watch whilst sipping our G and Ts and trying to control our very excited children . BRILLIANT

Rated 1 out of 5 by Nonesuch from An abysmal experience I went to this event with friends and we were all bitterly disappointed. We were sitting in the second row but still were unable to hear most of the lines spoken much too fast by the character of Mary Watson. The adaptation of Conan Doyle's script was puerile in the extreme and the acting was wooden, amateurish and badly delivered. The production was below that of a school play. We therefore left at the interval as did many others and this was nothing to do with the weather! We feel it was not worth the money we paid and the setting of Athelhampton Houses did not deserve such. Low class production

Rated 5 out of 5 by RoseanneB from Fantastic Performance is All Weathers! Myself and a friend went to the performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream at the Moorland Garden Hotel on Dartmoor. We had such a fantastic time, even though halfway through the weather turned on us! The cast and the performance were brilliant. It had all of the audience in stitches throughout and there was something for everyone. Young children loved the slapstick comedy and adults understood the more subtle humour. A truly wonderful event for all to enjoy.
