Sarah-Jane Redmond appeared twice a day as Hannah Jelkes, live on stage in The Night Of The Iguana by famous playwright Tennessee Williams during the period December 3rd -11th 2004. The play together with Summer and Smoke formed part of the recurring Tennessee Williams Festival at The Playwrights Theatre Centre, Granville Island, Vancouver which each year features selected Williams’ plays, as well as the works of other celebrated playwrights.
Two online reviews have been published crediting the skills of Sarah-Jane and the acting cast of this excellent production.

Thank you to Sarah-Jane for providing the links to these reviews.
