Christian Voices performed “Gifts from God” at The Pelham in October 2019, our first visit to that venue. Vanessa Wood saw that performance and has sent us this review.
I thought that the casting was very well done with each character showing the relevant actors strengths. I loved that Jo, Maureen and Margaret, the prompt and stage-management, were singing along to all the songs.
It’s a credit to Dave’s songwriting that after just hearing each chorus once, the chap next to me was singing along when the chorus was repeated in the song. Lovely singing and musical accompaniment.
I liked the venue too. Unlike John I had no knowledge of the storyline prior to the show, but found the play was very thought provoking and as relevant today as it would have been then.
Thanks, Vanessa. great to hear you liked the songs as well as the dramatic elements of the play.
