Manuelita is a delight, presented by the energetic and winning Tamsin Clarke her audience falls in love with both player and subject.
British Theatre Guide
Manuelita centres a visually striking hyper-reality around a charismatic and multi-faceted female lead, and its playful, pacey and poetic interpretation of history will strike a chord.
A slick, engaging piece of theatre, which conveys the life of Manuela Saenz with tenderness and charm. For an hour-long masterclass on how to write, star in and direct a one-woman show, Manuelita is your hit.
A real and physical presence, utterly impossible to ignore rousing and clear bursts with warmth and life.
