No words can adequately repay the debt that everyone in this production owes to Steve and Stella Broster; the King of AV and the Queen of PR. Steve has directed, filmed and edited all the amazing audio-visual work you will see in this show and, were it not for Stella, you might never even have heard about it. They are incomparably talented, generous and nice people, without whose friendship my life would be immeasurably diminished. - Michael McManus, Playwright, An Honourable Man.
