"That Adelaide company The Stirling Players is prepared to stage the controversial play’s Australian premiere says much for the company’s confidence in local Director Dave Simms. Stirling’s faith in Simms has been rewarded with a fine production"

"Stirling has excelled once again with the show’s set, lighting, sound and superb costumes"

"By the time the unpredictable plot reaches its conclusion everyone in the audience has experienced fine acting and a top level community theatre experience"

"Stirling has excelled once again with the show’s set, lighting, sound and superb costumes."

"The Stirling Players have done it again... Following up on their award winning show of 2015, The Beaux’ Stratagem, their first offering for 2016 is a delightful play"   

 "Director David Simms has gathered a talented cast of performers"

"The stand out performance for me was Alan Crawford... his characterisation and delivery were superb amongst an extremely talented cast"

 Jacqui Wall   
Encore Magazine  


"The Stirling Players are well known for their consistent, high-quality shows, and "Variation on a Theme" is no exception"

"Allison Scharber makes an excellent Rose"

"The set was one of the stand-out elements of the performance – the aesthetic is perfect for the French Riviera in the 50’s"

"It may be the only chance to see this play performed in Australia for quite some time"
