'Her bravery in confronting the former and in exposing it for us as part of this show is very real, very raw, unlike most shows she is not revealing someone elses weaknesses but her own. For the way she was treated when the lone woman on Mount Alice, and for the subsequent response of the RAF I feel ashamed ' ★★★★ UK Theatre Web
