Review in the Washington Post here
“Profoundly imaginative… unforgettable in both content and form” – The New Yorker
“Strange, exquisite and intensely affecting… a triumph of visual and aural design” – New York Times.
“Mark Melville’s pulsating, swelling score elevates the experience, as does his crisp sound design” – The Washington Post
An international co-production with Vanishing Point, Tron Theatre and Emilia Romagna Teatro, Italy.
★★★★★ – The Stage “The design is perfect, from Mark Melville’s cold but searingly emotive electronic score…”
★★★★ – The Guardian “… uncanny reading of the temperature of the times, from the fragility of the gig economy to the migrant crisis, it is an unsettling play for today”
★★★★★ – The Times ‘Much of the show’s power is purely visceral, with Simon Wilkinson’s woozy lighting coming together with the insinuating sound design, composed by Mark Melville, to create a vision that is unnerving without ever feeling strained’
THE GREATEST PLAY IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD...
“… about as close as theatre can come to being hugged for 70 minutes nonstop” ★★★★ The Independent
