Theatre audience at a play directed by Derekk Ross

A Servant to Two Masters

"Splendid material, well exploited by a talented company... Derekk Ross takes Lee Hall’s adaptation of Goldoni’s Commedia classic even further... unforgettable... a joy from start to finish."

~ Rosie Hughes, West Briton

Happy End

"One leading critic once said that a truly satisfying production of this work was not possible – but Trucco proves him wrong... the players not only made the whole thing sing, but also zing... at the Minack this week directed by Derekk Ross, it is a 50,000 dollar cracker of a show. Visually and aurally exhilarating... to borrow from its rousing agitprop finale Hosannah Rockerfeller, “may God bless…Trucco”, and send the company its just reward..."

~ Frank Ruhrmund, The Cornishman

Much Ado about Nothing

"...not the easiest of Shakespeare’s comedies, it doesn’t hide brutal attitudes of the times towards women... Trucco was up to the challenge: directed by Derekk Ross it was full of subtlety and strength... simple and effective... encouraged the audience to revel in the language... high energy... passionate and emotional... humour of the play beautifully captured... a pleasure to watch... an excellent evening of entertainment. This company is a must-see for your new year diary."

~ Maria Egan, West Briton


"Faultless as a piece of ensemble acting... directed by Derekk Ross with an acute sensitivity to human frailty... a superb example of how much can be achieved on very little indeed. Watch listings for their next venture - as an alternative to less rare pleasures."

~ Emma Hartley, Leeds Independent Newspaper

A Streetcar Named Desire

"...astonishing... a production that refuses to let go of your throat from first to last... An evening of inspired emotional violence."

~ Alfred Hickling, Yorkshire Post
