  • An unputdownable, utterly delightful stroll through British amateur theatre and why it has a vital place for us all

    Shappi Khorsandi
  • Landreth's charming book is both a cultural history of amateur theatre and a loving look at am-dram and its role in British life

  • This funny and interesting book makes you yearn for a long-lost sense of community, and then realise it’s been there all along. Jenny Landreth, take an Am Dram style bow

    John O’Farrell
  • Amateur is not a dirty word, but implies disinterested love, dedication and a clubbable, community feeling . . . Landreth reminds us, importantly, that the word amateur includes student and community theatre, vital seed corn and support to the professional world

    Libby Purvis, The Times
  • With spot-on injections of humour and a frequently raised sardonic eyebrow, joy and warmth shine from this fascinating and funny book
