"Ron Nicol is not only one of our most prolific playwrights, but a highly respected one, who is a fine wordsmith." (Amateur Stage - May 2007)

"We are thrilled to say that The Young Oxted Players swept the board at last night's Southern Counties Drama Festival and won Best Young Actor (Adam Farrell), Best Young Actress (Jo Cox), Best Stage Presentation, Best Junior Entry and Runner Up for the whole Festival! Five awards for one play appears to be an all time record at the festival. Our thanks to you for such a wonderful piece of theatre that had the audience totally gripped." (Young Oxted Players -'The Edge' 2008)

"...our production won four Awards at the 2013 Saltburn Drama Festival. The awards were for Best Production, the Audience Award ('The Edge' received more votes than all the other eight entries put together), the Best Youth Production and my two young actors (Natasha Graham and Noah Harrison) shared the Award for Best Youth Actor. (Saltburn '53 Drama Group - 'The Edge' 2013)

"One of Amateur Stage's favourite playwrights" (Amateur Stage - January 2014)
