★★★★★ “IN the deft hands of one of Adelaide’s most prodigious stage talents — writer-performer Joanne Hartstone — another is brought back to vivid and vivacious life: the story of actress turned suffragette Muriel Matters… Hartstone’s hour-long monologue is a rambunctious joy, flawlessly and humorously delivered, and a genuine insight into one of South Australia’s under-sung heroines.” – Patrick McDonald, The Advertiser
