“A Talented Woman” by Lynda Sturner and Jim Dalglish. Director by Jim Dalglish. World-premiere production March 21 - April 7, 2019 at Cotuit Center for the Arts.

“…the script is smart, the dialogue rings true, and the pacing is fast.... While it sounds like a recipe for a serious drama, ‘A Talented Woman’ is mostly humorous, and laugh-out-loud funny, at many points, though, some of the play’s more serious aspects are given due respect.”

While the nostalgia of a Neil Simon, Agatha Christie or Woody Allen production is often a safe bet … there’s a freshness in seeing not only something that’s new, but something that’s set in the present day, where parents have to deal with daughters who tweet and blog, wives have business sense, and everyone has a cellphone.” - The Enterprise

It might not be just like your life, but “A Talented Woman” touches on things that are familiar to most of us, most notably the reality that relationships are messy, whether they are between parents and children, between adult children and parents, or between husbands and wives.”

“The cast meshes under Jim Dalglish’s direction: [Anna] Botsford’s Victoria is brash, powerful and vulnerable...[Beau] Jackett is at once empathetic and sympathetic... [Orla] Delaney as the bratty teen is convincing, hilarious, and heartbreaking...[Lynda] Sturner is a crowd pleaser."
- Cape Cod Times 

“The complex Set Design by Glenn Bassett, Score and Sound Design by J. Hagenbuckle, Lighting Design by Greg Hamm and Costume Design by Tami Trask are all indicative of superb theatrical talent behind the scenes.”
- South Shore Critic

“Attention should also be paid to the Stage Crew who manage to pull off quite impressively the complicated scenic changes."
