The Autumn of Han toured to various rural touring network such as PoundArts, CRTA, Highlights, and Lincolnshire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire Rural Touring, and venues which are affliated with rural touring networks such as Arts Alive, Carn to Cove, and Villages in Action. We have received excellent reviews from audiences, promoters and theatre crew:
“The company was one of the easiest, friendliest and most helpful I've worked with. Very nice people, representing an interesting range of 'oriental nationalities'… The show itself was very good. It opened a window on the emotional side of ancient China not often portrayed in oriental work… Costumes were top notch. A most enjoyable evening!”
-Pat at Market Theatre, Ledbury (associated with Arts Alive)
“We all enjoyed having you in our village and Autumn of Han was much liked by our audience - very positive feed-back… We will be interested in your next show - I think a return visit would be appreciated in Whittingham.”
-Geoff Hoskin, Whittingham Promoter from Highlights Rural Touring
“It was great having you in Fulstow and we have lots of compliments about the show… Many thanks once again for a fantastic performance.”
