The London Theatre website has 13 production pics of this play, with two showing Nicola in character. She looks as if she is having a wonderful time on stage. She has said that being a stage actress is her real day job and its obvious that she loves her job!

From Twitter

First unofficial reviews have been trickling in, via Twitter.

lovely and respectful adaptation, sad and funny

they had a real golden retriever puppy on stage

after the play, [I am] even more in love with Una Stubbs, Niamh Cusack and Nicola Walker – @OughtToBeClowns

Inventive staging, as ever, from Marianne Elliot. NicolaWalker, NiamhCusack, & UnaStubbs: naturally, wonderful. DID I MENTION THE CUTENESS?

a little too slavish and wordy an adaptation. Some good set-pieces, though. ★★★
