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."
