LITTLE WOMEN #REVIEW & WHAT’S ON IN APRIL @ THE EPSOM PLAYHOUSE…
Posted by Kalli Pasqualucci on 12 Apr 2023
I love a trip to the theatre and a local visit even more, I must say that when Little Women at the Epsom Playhouse started I was dubious as to how the multiple characters were going to be played by just one. But Hannah Churchill captivated each character so beautifully – effortlessly changing (so completely) from one character to the next. I was absolutely spellbound.
The relationship between Hannah’s characters, particularly Jo, and Laurie (played by Reece Webster), the musician, is palpable and charming. I loved the balance of story, dance and musical interludes. And the set was beautifully visualised too.
I had forgotten how emotional the book and film made me – but the emotion that I felt watching this show was a hundred times stronger. I can, hand on heart, say that I’ve never watched a show like Little Women. And I think Hannah might be the most talented performer I’ve ever seen live.
There are many more amazing shows coming up at the Epsom Playhouse this month including:
Lucy Porter – Wake-Up Call

A brand new stand-up show from the TV and radio favourite. As heard on Radio 4’s The News Quiz and The Now Show and seen on Would I Lie to You, QI and Live at the Apollo.
Wake-Up Call is a show about revelations, realisations and epiphanies – both large and small. Subjects covered include: Bin collection schedules, the novels of Jean Rhys, cats, school fair booze tombolas, the Scottish Enlightenment, pressure washers and Huel. It’s an exuberant, silly show with some wisdom sprinkled on top.
