'While the play certainly makes a strong case for the virtues of those with red hair it also, and without being too obvious about it, has a word for all who are regarded as being outside of the mainstream and suffer for it.' - THE CORNISHMAN *****
'Overall it was an outstanding play that would appeal to all ages.' - WHAT'S WHAT MAGAZINE
The Acorn Penzance testimonial:
'The standard was very high - artistically and technically... Collene herself was both passionate and approachable and we would be keen for Redhead Reach to visit us again.'
'Such an impressive and moving performance. I just had not realised how much my red hair had affected my life!' - Audience member at Anne of Green Gables show.
Current Redhead Reach production is a one-woman web series about a confused millennial who enrols on an online course to discover her true vocation, only to become even more confused by an out-of-body programme in alphabetical order!
Leading transmedia magazine, The Snobby Robot, has done a great article about the show...
