UKTW News/Reviews


User Reviews

The Daily Telegraph (11Jan01): This is an intelligent, notably well-acted production of a fascinatingly unpleasant play. Turn up the heat a couple of notches and it could prove sensational.
The Times (11Jan01): Strindberg would have admired [Aisling O Sullivan] s adventurous switches between baffled passivity and screeching rage. [Christopher Eccleston] s Jean, with his northern accent and slicked-back hair, has all the vigour and energy a Strindbergian man could want, but his own insecurities too. Both main performances keep you thinking, judging, sympathising, not sympathising at all.
