Very moving, powerful and very well presented. - Heather and Mike Brayshaw
I really enjoyed the combo of music and serious subject, I was drawn into the Penn story by the acting, from the very start! Nothing dragged, nothing seemed not quite as it should be. And the music was fun yet interesting and harmonically developed. So bravo to all of you. - Margie
Everyone I spoke to after the performance thoroughly enjoyed it. how effective it was to have the cast sit in with the audience and to make such dramatic use of the centre aisle.
I thought the second half in particular was very moving. It is interesting how pioneers with high ideals often can't get to where they want to go - but that their struggles pave the way for the future - and so they should be more celebrated. Sue's favourite song was 'Mary' and mine was Philadelphia! - Jill Goldman
Most enjoyable, a fascinating story sung by a great cast, making the fullest use of the of meeting house space. Congratulations to all involved in this production. Too good to be over, this is just the beginning. We all thought it should be in the west end, do hope so. - Pat Strong

"... a truly GREAT show. Both Jo, our friends Ian and Suzanne and myself thought it was absolutely wonderful and really does deserve exposure to much bigger audiences. In particular we felt that many of the musical numbers would certainly appeal to a younger audience.

"Thanks for yesterday evening Martin. Well worth coming up to London for. For me there were some really powerful moments: probably the most powerful was Anthony's song 'My Mary' with the terrible cruelty in the background.
"My family and I really enjoyed The Perfect City on Tuesday at Rickmansworth. I want to congratulate you and the whole team on a very good show. As Quakers who are also into musical theatre, we were obviously going to be watching from several angles at once, and we were delighted.
"Congratulations on your musical play at Dorking yesterday. It was well worth the effort of driving the 250 miles back from Cornwall to see it. You have a very talented little group there."
"It was good to have you with us. What a lovely Company of performers - with some fine voices. Everyone who was there who has spoken to me has said how much they enjoyed the evening - so well done to you all." - The Reverend Deborah Snowball, Vicar of Rickmansworth
"Thumbs up and power to your elbow for the show, Martin. I noticed that cast only had 45 minutes to 'escape & refresh'. I marvelled very much at that". - John Champneys
"I saw the show at the Friends Meeting House in Cambridge last Saturday. Still the songs are circulating in the orchestra in my head, and in my heart.
"Phenomenal sell out at Dorking ! Congratulations !
