    "Working with Joanna Greaves on the Shakespeare in the Attic Festival was a delight - she has a very clear vision of the characters, their journey and staging. The scenes were varied and her sense of communication made it easy to change details accordingly, giving the actor space to improvise. " Anna Roca

    Dan Horrigan Artistic Director

    Jo Greaves runs Skylight. A very good company that champions new writing in London. I've been a part of it and think Jo and her company, and the people she pulls together are splendid. Resourceful, organized, and highly creative. Dan Horrigan Sky or the Bird
