REVIEWS

“Jane James is a marvellously funny, clever and thoughtful writer.” Janet Ollier, Goosfest

“I so enjoyed working with Jane on the Ma Kelly scripts, she is quick witted and perceptive, putting serious issues into an entertaining script that absolutely fulfils the brief and goes beyond it, inspired.” Jenny Lee, Director, ATTIC Theatre Company

“Wow, wow, wow - how good was Jane James at the Northwich LitFest event at Davenham Theatre last night?? We were all blown away by this super-talented lady, when it comes to playwrights she is simply the best!” Susi Osborne, Northwich Literary Festival
