Better Than Reviews: Heartfelt Praise From A Director

Recently, Shirlene Holmes received an email out of the clear blue from a young student director in South Africa. Ms. Holmes didn't even know her play was being produced in South Africa but the most rewarding and spirit lifting part of the surprise came in the words found in the note:

My name is Alude Mahali. I am a 21 year old girl doing my Honours in Drama at Rhodes University in South Africa. In a weeks time I will be putting on a production of Shirlene Holmes' A Lady and a Woman at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown South Africa. I wanted to say that it has been my privilege to put on such an honest and heartfelt piece. I would like to say that Dr. Holmes is my own personal 'sheroe' and I can only hope that I succeed in capturing the beauty, poetry and believability of the piece just as Dr. Holmes wrote it.

Thank you so much for your brilliant mind, mama,

Alude Mahali
South Africa

Praise for your work can't get much better than that.
