Rattlesnake… beautifully acted and written…it rises to the kind of ritualistic intensity one does not often see, but always longs for, in contemporary theatre”
Asheville Express

“John Hardy’s one-man version of A Christmas Carol… a stunning work of theatrical virtuosity. Run to see this; take the whole family. You will be transfixed from the first moment…. This play brings the story to life…. I’ve seen this story many times but never like this… it will be as if you are seeing it for the first time”
