"The fast flowing action needed a generosity of spirit on stage that suited Jade’s talent and tireless work ethic. Always willing to take direction she also contributed many ideas along the way and knitted scenes together with sensitivity, stagecraft and maturity. She once again proved to be a very giving actress and a natural comic on stage.
Jade had the difficult job of engendering audience participation which she accomplished with aplomb. Her natural warmth shone through engaging both walkers and audience, and the scene throbbed with vibrant energy thanks to both her enthusiasm and well developed physicality.
Jade played the role of several marshalls each well observed and nuanced. She made good use of her voice with appropriate pitch, tone, diction and volume for each character. However, it was her facial expressions and timing that set her apart on stage as a natural comic. The nature of the play meant that Jade had to take responsibility for countless scenery changes and movement of props.
As a director knew I could always rely on Jade not only to undertake her own tasks with precision but also to cover up for others not quite on the ball.
I would always be keen to have Jade on board in any play. She commands the stage, learns lines easily, feeds off other actors and is eminently watchable. Jade was a joy to work with and I look forward to casting her again in future productions."
