Previews and Interviews
"I have directed this play in French three times and I refused to direct it in any other language. Then I saw the Scottish translation, and I thought it was brilliant."
"When Les Belles Souers opened in Montreal in 1968, it shook the theatre to its very rafters"
"the play has proved so phenomenally successful and, on its debut, even incendiary"
"Without this tale of 15 women... a generation of Scots playwrights might never have expressed themselves so vigorously in their own voice."
"I can honestly say I have never wanted to play a part as much as I did this one when I read the script."
