Past Productions

Twice as Good Productions has produced the following theatre:

Oscar Wilde A5 flyer cmyk with 5mm bleed

“Some seriously good acting, brilliant production, glorious costumes, inspired staging and picturesque setting converged to create one of the most enjoyable evenings out in Tauranga this summer at Wednesday’s opening night of The Importance of Being Earnest.”  Director and producer Suzy Sampson is known for her meticulous attention to style and detail, and the welcoming ambience of the Roaring Twenties was perfect in every way.”  NZ Herald

Diary of a Break Up Breakdown by Alex Broun directed by Suzy Sampson               Short & Sweet Festival  Auckland Sept 2016

” Diary of a Break Up Break Down performed by  Alex Walker and Hannah Botha is the highlight of the day for me, and the play that gains my vote to go into the Grand Final. This piece has strong performances,  and a real sense of resolution by the end. The performers use their set effectively and are both convincing in all of the quick changes of emotion that they suffer.  This is the play that seems most finished of all of those on offer in this session, and I am keen to see more of Walker and Botha’s work”.   Theatreview


As You Like It by William Shakespeare directed by Suzy Sampson

at Te Puna Quarry on the Dragon Lawn

“A delightful evening’s entertainment and a worthy successor to last year’s inaugural Outdoor Shakespeare” Bay of Plenty Times



A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare  directed by Suzy Sampson

at Te Puna Quarry on the Dragon Lawn

“There are many highlights in this production with some clever casting and quality acting. Suzy Sampson brings a sensuality and fine gracefulness to Titania”  Theatre View



Nocturne by Adam Rapp directed by Laura Dodwell Groves

at the Hong Kong Arts Centre

“if you’re in Hong Kong and like me, you believe that good theatre inspires you to want to be onstage performing, then you owe it to yourself to get along to the MacAulay Studio to witness a beautiful production of Adam Rapp’s “Nocturne”, lovingly crafted for the stage. This production is a feast for the senses” Damien Barnes




Old Times by Harold Pinter – co produced  by Sometimes Y Theatre directed by Robert Tsonos

at the HK Arts Centre

“Pinter’s dialogue awash with canny linguistic tricks is a joy to hear, particularly when delivered with sharp timing such as this. Suzy Sampson’s portrayal of Kate provided the axis and it is she who gives grand voice to the work’s final monologue” **** TimeOut  Hong Kong



100 Saints You Should Know by Kate Fodor

directed by Suzy Sampson at the McAuley Studio Hong Kong

“suffice it to say Saints is one of the very best plays you are likely to see all year – one that will  stick with you long after the lights have gone down”  Stage Scene HK



Shakespeare’s Will by Vern Theissen directed by Robert Tsonos

Voted Best Show in the Hong Kong Arts Awards 2011

As well as being shown in Hong Kong this play was also performed in Prague International Theatre Festival and the Auckland Fringe Festival – a one woman show with Suzy Sampson in the role of Anne Hathaway.


“Sampson steadily fleshes out her character with a commitment that is rarely seen on the city’s stage…. Tsonos’ direction is excellent. Tsonos and Sampson use the entire stage and a careful range of postures, gestures and tones of voice to bring to life a script that, for all its excellence, could easily have been mishandled by a less able duo.”  **** TimeOut Hong Kong

“A remarkable creative imagining” Theatre Scenes Auckland

“Sampson delivers a riveting performance”  NZ Herald

“Sampson holds the audience in her sway”  Prague Post
