November 2013 - Linwood No More preview tour ends on a high

White Stag Theatre Company would like to thank all of the audience members who came to see the  preview shows of Linwood No More. We are glad that you enjoyed the show and thank all of those who sent in thank you letters. Very much appreciated.  The show finished with a site specific showing  at the former car factory in Linwood where the play is partially set. Paisley Arts Centre created a theatre within the former 1960s car showroom and a temporary stage off the bottom of the administration office staircase.  This special venue really added to the occasion and was a great way to finish the preview tour.  With this good feedback we are now taking it for its official world premier to The Edinburgh Fringe in 2014.  Come and see the final version in Edinburgh.

Some of the reviews are printed below:

"..It was fantastic..." Leah Smith

"...great performance last night...." John Craig

"Vincent executed the character brilliantly, would happily go and see it again!" Robert Rice

"This is a fabulous show that captivates you from start to finish...Vincent pulls off a great character..."  Carol Fanning

"...fantastic performance given by Vincent Friell. The Edinburgh Fringe would be richer for such a performance as that given last night" M.Scott

"...the atmosphere in the room was electric."


October 2013 - Standing ovation at Dunfermline preview

The show arrived at the Carnegie Hall in Dunfermline on Thursday 10th October.  The Hillman Imp Club came to support the show and parked their cars at the front of the theatre.  Vincent Friell was on top form, so much so, that at the end the applause was huge and some of the audience made a standing ovation.
