"...a masterclass in performance and storytelling."
The Coast, Halifax, Nova Scotia (Michael Lake reviewing The Ghost Project).
"...an engaging piece of solo verbatim theatre that is deeply moving at times, very funny at others, and always expertly performed by Richards."
Halifax Bloggers (Carey Bray, actor/director, blogger and theatre critic for The Coast, reviewing The Ghost Project).
"Richards is captivatingly versatile in her reflections, making her a strong contender for Fringe’s Best Performer award. The Ghost Project goes deep into the subject of mortality and the existence of an ethereal afterlife. It’s not about cheap scares- it’s about understanding the unknown and not having to do so alone."
