    "Far more engaging is Evans as John's sour-mouthed mum, quietly and inwardly crumbling Evans suggests a woman numbed and adrift." The Times

    "Ruth Evans as John's mother captures all the pain and resignation of a woman who has never known how to love either her husband or her son" Whatsonstagecom

    "Ruth Evans, as John's recently widowed mother, is good enough to pep things up." Time Out

    "Ruth Evans, a retired drama teacher turned bloody good actor....two phenomenal stage talents in Coghill and Evans." The London Paper

    About me

    REVIEWS.THE TONGUE TWISTER. 24:7 2014.

    "And they're all under the spell of strict teacher Miss Primer played with fearsome grandeur by Ruth Evans." WhatsOnStage.

    STEPPING OUT.UNION THEATRE. 2012

    "Ruth Evans delightfully plays the formidable pianist, Mrs Fraser, and completely captures the essence of the Northern battle-axe." Bargain Theatre

    "Ruth Evans' tight-lipped accompanist makes a dry foil, moralising over the girls with her nose buried in a glossy mag." WhatsonStage

    "Ruth Evans gives a compelling and nuanced performance." The Stage

    "Elderly pianist, the sternly sarcastic Mrs Fraser, expertly played by scene stealing Ruth Evans" BeigeUK

    "Ruth Evans is a delight as the bad-tempered lady at the piano" Reviewsgate
