1/1

Jon Fosse has written... a poetic and skillful drama of subtexts and gasps... May-Brit Akerholt’s translation... works subtly with the rhythms and vocabulary of Australian English inside a very spare and poetic structure... Lord is excellent... Downing is superb... Joseph Uchitel directs simply, keeping a tight control on the special relations and even tighter grasp on the subtlety.

Stephen Dunne, The Sydney Morning Herald

 

... a taut production by Joseph Uchitel for the East Coast Theatre Company, with two fine actors, Vanessa Downing and Tamblyn Lord, in a vivid translation by May-Brit Akerholt. We need more of the non-English repertoire in this country.

John McCallum, The Australian

 

It was one of the best things I've seen in Sydney for a long time..
