The Lasses, O  Janet Paisley

"In this dramatic and unusual piece of theatre, Janet Paisley gives voice to women in Burns’ life who have been hitherto silent and forgotten. It is usually his lovers that are focused on, but the women we meet here are by turn superstitious, pragmatic, passionate, brave and caring.....It is both moving and funny, showing an unromanticised view of the reality of life's harshness in that time, and the light and dark of Burns' life. It is done through strong and convincing performances..."

"'s a pleasure to hear Janet Paisley's words performed with the joy and precision the cast of five women lend the Dumfriesshire brogue she has employed. Crammed with Scots acting talent..." The Scotsman

"A play so authentic you feel as if you have travelled back in time. A brilliant piece by five wonderful lassies." Three Weeks
