PRESS REVIEWS  Mrs Lees and her Ladies | Nothing Personal

 

"Too good a concept NOT to be shown more widely", 

"Warm, well-written characters we can all identify with."

"Far too few roles showing older women as anything other than senile, a notion Mrs Lees knocks on its backside."

"Writer Linda Campbell should be rightly proud of this seminal piece!' 

"This could only have been written by someone with a much loved, respected older relative."
