What the press say about Fanny Hill

“… a hugely enjoyable bawdy romp . It’s deliciously naughty and well worth staying up for…!

Jane-Ann Purdy, The Scotsman

“… Everchild’s adaptation for the stage catches the essential lusty humour and irreverence of John Cleland’s original book …

… Actress Philippa Hammond is instantly likeable as the much-sought-after Fanny, and brings an unexpected grace and vulnerability to the character…

… the intelligent script explores the base reality behind the veneer of genteel respectability in an enchanting and highly entertaining way…

… a scorcher of a show ..”
