THE STAGE ★★★★

A HIP ROMEO AND JULIET... IMPOSSIBLY COOL... YOU CAN FEEL THE TERRIBLE, IMPETUOUS FLUSHES OF FIRST LOVE AND YOU WANT IT WORK OUT FOR THEM.

SUPERB. ANOTHER BOLD ACHIEVEMENT FROM A VERY TALENTED ENSEMBLE

TIME OUT ★★★★

THE INDEPENDENT ★★★★

THE FACTION DASH A KNOWLEDGEABLE AUDIENCE’S PRECONCEPTIONS AND MAKE THEM FEEL THE WHOLE THING, WHOLE-HEARTEDLY, ALL OVER AGAIN

A YOUNGER THEATRE

A HIP ROMEO AND JULIET... IMPOSSIBLY COOL... YOU CAN FEEL THE TERRIBLE, IMPETUOUS FLUSHES OF FIRST LOVE AND YOU WANT IT WORK OUT FOR THEM.

THE STAGE ★★★★

“EXCELLENT ADAPTATION OF PATRICIA HIGHSMITH’S 1955 THRILLER NOVEL. IT’S A DARK, EXCITING JOURNEY THROUGH ONE MAN’S MURDEROUS MIND. THE TENSE, OFTEN ABSTRACT STAGING RUNS AT A HIGH PACE'
TIMEOUT ★★★★

“THE FACTION TURN THEIR ATTENTION TO JOAN OF ARC IN THIS COMPELLING, STARKLY STRIPPED-BACK, MODERN DRESS PRODUCTION... FINDING THE MORDANT HUMOUR IN THE EGO-DRIVEN POWER POLITICS AND A FRESH VISUAL SHORTHAND, THE PRODUCTION NEVER RELAXES ITS GRIP.”

THE INDEPENDENT

ALL THINGS MUST END THIS PLAY TELLS US AND SADLY THAT IS TRUE OF THE FACTION’S REPERTORY SEASON, BUT AS WITH JOAN HERSELF, THIS PRODUCTION WILL SEND THEM OUT IN A BLAZE OF GLORY.
REVIEWSHUB ★★★★

THIS INNOVATIVE SHOW ABOUT A WARRIOR INSPIRED BY RELIGION FEELS HAUNTINGLY TOPICAL

ONCE A WEEK THEATRE

THE ENSEMBLE FEELS THREADED THROUGH THE VERY SKIN OF THE PRODUCTION

OUGHT TO BE CLOWNS
