East is East brings Jane Horrocks back to stage in a terrific, gutsy-yet-sensitive portrayal of Ella.

The diminutive actress has a winning stage personality in which courage mingles with vulnerability and good humour with heartache. She is a heroine you instantly warm to - and feel protective of.

What makes it work are the performers, particularly Mullan and Horrocks, who give it their considerable all.
