REVIEWS

‘It’s never too late to find love in life and also to charm an audience. Paul Smith has written a very gentle, yet moving piece about two people finding their way through life after a loss and meeting on a bench. It’s simple and warmly felt. And it shows that life can keep surprising you no matter where you’re at.’ – John Busser on New Play Exchange

 

‘As its title implies, A PLEASURE is a pleasure, a sweet, unassuming little love-story-in-the-making. Smith’s two lonely characters are so deftly and lovingly drawn one can’t help rooting for them throughout, and by the end we’re quietly cheering. In between the joyful tears. Beautiful.’ – Doug DeVita on New Play Exchange
