Bookworms by Mike Venner

“The professionalism lies in Wendela Rosenberg Polak’s crisp direction and Malcolm George’s intelligent designs. It supports quirky trial pieces by would be dramatists and raw performances from relatively inexperienced actors . . . the writing is neatly poised between the naive and the grotesque and Mike Venner has a promising instinct for the shape of a theatrical text.”

Fintan O’Toole, Irish Times

The Cripple of Inishmaan by Martin McDonagh

“Although Druid’s outing of the play deserved all the accolades it got, Beehive, a lesser known theatre company in Dingle, have just presented ‘Cripple’ on a smaller stage, with a smaller budget and captured even more intimately the nuanced essence of McDonagh’s treatment.” Breda Shannon, Irish Theatre Magazine

Dancing at Lughnasa by Brian Friel

“Wendela Rosenberg . . . has inspired the cast to greatness. Beehive’s production deserves a tour and a sponsor . . . it should not be missed. It compares favourably with anything the Abbey has done with the Friel play . . . this is superb theatre, played and directed with extraordinary passion.” The Examiner

“I have just enjoyed the best performance of Brian Friel’s dancing at Lughnasa that I have ever seen. Well actually I have enjoyed it twice.” Irish Independent
