D'ARCY is as strong and important a play as any of the old masters. The Standard

Humorous, emotional and passionate. She left the audience with lumps in their throats. Joan Cumming, Province House, Charlottetown

Sandra was magnificent in the trousers role,
drunk or sober, old or young,
idealist or rogue and she also displayed an amazing, gorgeous Irish whisky-baritone singing voice!   Geralyn Horton, Galway
