Review: Waiting for God

IF you are looking for a night of entertainment which is also value for money, then this play, Waiting for God, is ideal for you. There were a lot of laughs from the audience.

My husband and I were first timers and were unsure of what to expect! In saying that, we were not disappointed at all, and we received over two hours of comical entertainment. 

I found that the play was very good, and it offered a great night of entertainment. It was definitely better than sitting at home in front of the TV! 

The script was creative and moving and the message being delivered was humourous and light-hearted, the audience loved it.

It is obvious that the play was written for a more older audience. With themes based around loss, age care facilities, and second chances all of which are presented from an adults perspective. 

The performances from the cast members showed many a hidden talent and I found the main characters,  Diana and Tom were well suited to their parts.

Very much looking forward to the next performance.

  1. We attended the Saturday evening production and were entertained by a wonderful group of very talented local actors who are to be congratulated for their efforts.
    Agree it is an adults only performance with the plot touching on a wide range of social issues that we will all face some day.
    Well done to all involved.

  2. A delightfully entertaining afternoon matinee was had last weekend. The play was a testament of some very hidden talents amongst the players on stage. A lighthearted view on many of life’s ups and downs, probably suited mainly to a mature audience. Thoroughly recommended attendance, most happy to give support to the Derwent Valley Players for future entertainment. As an aside Dave, I probably can’t look at you again without a giggle. Well done one and all.
