    Reviews:

    "Arnold Wesker's 'Annie Wobbler' provided an excellent vehicle for Natalie Castka. Strong characterisation and an assured stage presence..."

    - The Stage

    "Castka was relaxed, precise and charming onstage. It's a crisp bit of writing, performed with style by Castka."

    "The humor is both subtle and farcical, and Castka brought talent and charm to the piece."

    - Kansas City Star

    Natalie Castka is aspiring actress Lesley who tells the audience about her latest big break in a movie which doesn't sound quite as 'Hollywood' as she might have hoped.

    Castka is wonderful as Lesley, energetic and engaging throughout the 50 minute monologue.

    Her unfaltering enthusiasm and naivety makes us both laugh with and sympathise for her as she tells of seedy directors and crew members with dubious intentions.

    Performed simply with just a few costume changes, Blackout Theatre Company, has created a show which has storytelling at its heart, and Natalie captures a sense of all the different characters in her story, while being the only person on stage.

    - getreading.co.uk

    ‘Her Big Chance’ is very revealing about the attitudes towards female actors in the 1980’s, there to ‘sex up’ TV and film productions, without many lines. Even the character of Lesley - although admirable in her drive and ambition -is a woman who lacks ability, seen but not heard.

    Which is the reverse of Natalie Castka who is a fantastic performer, sharp, witty, engaging who captivates our attention for the duration of the performance. With lightning quick costume changes, directed by David Baxter, Blackout Theatre are a Bedford based company to look out for.
