    I enjoyed the performance immensely. Especially the fact that the responsibility for the whole play lay on the shoulders of just two highly emotive performers. Medhavi Patel was an apt choice. Additionally, the Scriptwriting and Musical skills of Neil Gore served as the most delicious icing on the cake. Last but not the least, the play owes it's well-deserved victory to the Directoral genius of Louise Townsend making excellent use of the audience participation. A very big Congratulations to all the Team!

    Saw this production in Sheffield. Great writing and heartfelt and compelling performance by Neil Gore & Medhavi Patel. Wonderful. We were there with Mrs Desai. As students we had supported the women. It wasincrediblymoving to sit with the whole struggle reinforcing indelibythe impact that the strike, countrywide support for this struggle for human rights. equal pay for women and respectful and dignified treatment employees, the ensuing struggle, even till todaystrugglewas so uniquely initiated the factory and such utterly sefflesscommitted action by jayaben Desai and striking women. It was truly uplifting and reinforced that inspiring energy we experienced as students, creating support, putting up posters, supporting coaches leaving Lancashire and Yorkshireto give their support at that time. This production is so important to tell the whole story.

    Great production. Had me moved to tears by the end. The way you brought it to the stage is amazing.

    Really enjoyed the play last night in Nottingham. Brilliantly acted, well designed stage set, serious, funny, songs, audience participation and brought back memories of the time - sadly all too relevant today in terms of management exploitation of workers and the need for strong unions to fight for workers' rights.

    Good luck for rest of tour. My first time for a Townsend production - I will look out for the next one!

    Brilliant show at Harrogate Theatre. Fantastic to see Jayaben Desai's story told in such a powerful way. Excellent acting and nuanced script. Emotional and funny too! Good luck with the rest of the tour.

    Fantastic piece of theatre that rightly brings Mrs Desai to the fore. Love theatre that highlights courageous women. Thank you

    Last night we enjoyed 'We are Lions, Mr Manager' at the Seagull Theatre at Pakefield, Lowestoft.

    Another inspirational production with a wonderful script, and performance by Neil Gore.

    There was an enthusiastic and appreciative audience, and I enjoyed joining the picket line!

    Medhavi Patel was passionate and faultless in her portrayal of Jayaben Desai - both moving and challenging. A truly wonderful actor. Even in her silent moments, her face demonstrated determination, courage and dignity.

    The irony is that the play still resonates totally with issues today, such as workers rights, union recognition and also harassment at work.

    We so much look forward to these plays and this production was well supported at the Seagull. They particularly appreciated the opportunity to chat to Neil and Medhavi afterwards.

    I note that there is a heavy touring schedule coming up with Poole one night and Liverpool the next!

    We are so fortunate to have these productions visit the area each year. The songs are always stirring and I wish we could get some on CD. I have searched online, but can't find a compilation yet. 'Hold the Line' and 'Talking Grunwick' were both hugely inspirational.

    I have just ordered Jack Dromey's book 'Grunwick, the Worker's Story'.
