2016Samantha Spurgin must be highly congratulated on her colourful and assured performance as Edith Piaf
Amy Squirell

2016A spirited and well-judged turn from Samantha Spurgin as Toine.
STEPHEN COLLINS

2016particular mention should go to Samantha Spurgin as Piaf’s longstanding friend, Toine. Their relationship forms the soul of the show

2015Spurgin IS Piaf. Pushing away those that are closest to her, boozing and popping pills, the actress perfectly captures the fragility and isolation of the ‘little sparrow’ as she careers towards her tragically premature death. And I defy anyone not to get shivers down their spine during the final song

    'In the second half, Spurgin IS Piaf.
