“Nova Skipp as the over-theatrical mother, Judith, is a joy to behold, riding along on the crest of past glories and memories, sidestepping a plethora of barbed comments and giving back as good as she gets. Her vocal performance, accompanying herself on the piano, is one of the highlights of the night.” (Barry Dix on ‘Hay Fever’)
