'The video of Hannah and Hanna is brilliant. I was very moved watching it...It comes off the page beautifully.' Deirdre Griffin, PGCE tutor for Drama at Goldsmiths 'An exhilarating introduction to contemporary theatre...Year 7s will enjoy the wildly futuristic and surreal Mama Yankee.' Cecily O'Neill, TES, December 2002 'I found the videoed plays a great resource. Each has only two actors, which works well because the close-ups do not give viewers the sense they are missing action taking place elsewhere on stage... Hannah and Hanna moved me to tears by the strength of its writing and by the terrific performance on video of Celia Meiras as Hanna, a Kosovan refugee living in Margate...The quality and range of the activities accompanying the plays are excellent, and there are additional resources on the EMC website.' Sally Griffin, The Secondary English Magazine, April 2003
