Audience reactions

This was a stunning production. I was blown away by the acting and the direction. And the set was amazing. This is the first time I have seen anything by Pranksters but I will be back!


Saw Jerusalem last night and it was incredible. I was bowled over by the set, the acting, the marvellous script.. I was mesmerised. Didn't want it to end. Mark Ashdown led a fantastic cast. If I could see it again tonight I would. Well done... Superb show.


Congratulations to all cast and creative involved in Jerusalem. A fantastic piece of theatre. Brilliant script, set, direction and performances. I came along on the opening night, worth the 150 round trip from Eastbourne!
