Audience reactions to Between the Lines:
“Evocative and haunting, distilled and poignant but ultimately uplifting.”
“de Deney’s latest performance combines poetry and virtuoso storytelling to create a poignant revisiting of the themes of war, love and loss.”
“Your performance was captivating, you played all your characters so believably, both male and female, loved the humour and the emotional end left me with a tear in my eye.”
“Spellbinding and emotionally challenging. A must for all of us and essential for our children to witness first hand the horrors of war.”
