★★★★ THE GUARDIAN

"Director Jude Christian and designer Ana Inés Jabares Pita riff on this idea very cleverly in an evening in which form and content are married to offer a harrowing, astringent but surprisingly playful critique of war, and the violence of patriarchy and capitalism. It’s devastating."

- Lyn Gardner

★★★★★ THE TIMES

"This new play by Cordelia Lynn is about sex trafficking and hanging on to your soul in the heart of horrors. Sounds punishing, I know. Yet it’s one of the most powerful 90 minutes I’ve spent in a theatre.

It starts lightly, brightly and driftingly, mind. Katie West as Lela takes us through her life in a mountainside hometown that remains unnamed (although Lynn was inspired by a true story of an Albanian family). As she stands in a tutu in front of Ana Inés Jabares Pita’s showbizzy set — red curtain, LELA lit up in neon capitals — you wonder why quite such a fuss is being made of such a normal life"

LYN GARDNER'S TOP 10 THEATRE OF 2014 - 6. IDOMENEUS

★★★★ THE GUARDIAN

 "In Ellen McDougall's playful production, ink becomes blood, balloons turn into a monster's head, and the wonderfully relaxed, inventive cast hand the story around like children playing pass the parcel at a birthday party. Ana Inés Jabares Pita's design conjures portholes and ships, and Jon Nicholls' score and sound design subtly racks up the tension." 

-Lyn Gardner

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

★★★★ THE GUARDIAN

"sharp, stylish and edgy […} Striking settings, by Ana Inés Jabares Pita, are minimally suggestive."

-Clare Brennan

 

 ★★★★ THE TELEGRAPH

The supporting ensemble – which includes impressive Italian actors Ivan Castiglione and Andrea Volpetti – move in and out of Ana Inés Jabares Pita's evocative, smartly functional set with the necessary sharpness.

-Mark Brown
