Audience reactions to Hidden Glory:

'I thought the play was beautifully written and beautifully acted. I would strongly recommend it to anybody who is curious about the pathways to extraordinary creativity'.

'A triumph – interesting, delightful, entertaining, and informative.'

'It so well captured [Hodgkin's] extraordinary courage, determination intelligence and capacity for hard work, coupled, with an impish sense of humour and integrity.'

'Miranda Cook was simply terrific in the role but the whole production was excellent – we were all held by it.'
