Same Time, Next Year
"Abi Titmuss and ex Emmerdale star and West End favourite Ben Freeman will headline a brand new production of the hit 1975 Broadway comedy Same Time, Next Year for a strictly limited season at Jersey Arts Centre in St Helier, Jersey, from 10th to 14th May ahead of an anticipated London transfer.
Described by the New York Times as "the funniest comedy about love and adultery to come to Broadway," Same Time, Next Year was a long running hit, clocking up over three and a half years on Broadway in its original staging. It was also nominated for the Tony Award for Best Play and won the Drama Desk Award for outstanding new American Play.
Same Time, Next Year is a romantic comedy about an adulterous love affair taking place only once a year. George, a New Jersey accountant, picks up Doris, a bored housewife, in a California Inn in 1951 and they agree to meet once a year from then on. During the time they spend with each other they discuss the births, deaths and marital problems each is experiencing at home whilst adapting themselves to the social changes affecting their lives. Same Time, Next Year was adapted into a successful film in 1978, which was nominated for 4 Oscars and for 4 Golden Globes winning 1." Broadwayworld.com

"Macbeth in the criminal underworld was brilliantly and convincingly portrayed, with many cast members strutting the stage as swaggering, gun-toting hoods. The production was distinguished by attention to detail, thoughtful costume choice and imaginative staging. But all this would be as nought, were it not backed up by performances to match. John Hales, Actor-Director-Seagull-Theatre-Driving-Force, gave a towering performance. Snarling menace, delivered in a Glaswegian growl, was combined with manic, deranged disarray. And the Main Draw of the production, Abi Titmuss, laid her Lads’ Mags ghost to rest with a studied and icily polished performance as the doomed spouse. They were backed up with excellent support in other roles, notably MacDuff and Duncan/Siward." Hugh Gatenby, http://www.onesuffolk.co.uk/reviews/macbethseagull.htm
The Naked Truth
"The entire audience loved it and a group of women sat near me stood up part way through in appreciation. As a whole the show did a good job of highlighting some serious issues while at the same time providing a couple of hours worth of solid entertainment. All in all, some great comedic moments, a good old tug of the heartstrings and an ending, which could both serve as an inspiration and just good old fashioned entertainment. I'm certain the orders for poles will come flooding in." Rory Auskerry- Utopia Fm, Sunderland
"Written by Dave Simpson, The Naked Truth is a touching story that fluctuates between slapstick and genuine heart, but the next laugh is never far away so it does not disintegrate into sentimentality or take itself too seriously.
Titmuss, a trained actress but better known for her work as a glamour model, had a serene stage presence and was very likeable as single mum Gabby." Basingstoke Gazette
Two Way Mirror
"An actress of genuine promise. Playing two very different roles, she not only demonstrates her versatility, but delivers her lines with attractive warmth and conviction, holding the stage even in moments of repose." The Stage
