One Way Ticket – audience feedback
One Way Ticket, the latest production in the Half Moon presents portfolio, has been touring nationally since March 2014, and been gaining great feedback from audiences members.
This powerful and poetic piece of theatre for ages 8 to 12, based on the true stories of children involved in the child migrants scandal of the 1950s, has been performed at The Tom Thumb Theatre Margate, and on boats SS Shieldhall Southampton and LV21 in Gillingham. The production can be seen at Half Moon Theatre between 30 April & 3 May. Click here for more details.
Below is a piece of audience feedback from an audience member who saw the production on SS Shieldhall in Southampton:
“I went to see the performance of One Way Ticket on SSShieldhall at Southampton this afternoon. I thought it was a brilliant piece of dramatised poetry. I felt it succeeded really well as a STORY told in verse. The verse form was not too dominant but appeared to advance and recede quite naturally as the story unfolded and developed. As a piece of story-telling One Way Ticket captured the listener’s imagination just like a Michael Morpurgo story does. The facial expressions and body language really created a seamless integration of poetry and drama. I thought Sophie particularly excelled in this aspect and the other two were good at this also. And finally I feel that One Way Ticket should be billed as a story for ALL ages. As an older adult I found it every bit as intriguing and moving as I guess the younger members of the audience did. Don’t suggest that it is aimed at 8 to 12 year olds. This might be denying adults a real treat!!!”
