“An unadorned small masterpiece.”
“Both actors handle the material with a nuanced, tender energy”
“Director Elias Jamieson Brown executes a confident, tense, bare-bones production, where there is nowhere for his actors to hide, and the long littleness of life is fully on display in an inescapable, Beckettesque fishbowl.”
“Brown has guided his actors to astonishing performances.”
“I was moved to tears several times in the show, by both Robinson and Sara – seeing their tough exteriors crumble… an extraordinary piece of theatre.”
“At once simple in its execution and complex at its core, This Wide Night is a testament to the power of theatre not as a vehicle for sympathy from above, but engagement in the lives of others.”
“Both performances are inexhaustibly absorbing — director Elias Jamieson Brown’s work here is excellent… “
The play is mesmerising in its authenticity “
“The performances are excellent, catching all the ebbs and flows of dependence and of feeling trapped, of need and rejection.”
“Refined Performances that tapped into a rawness of the human condition that was tangible.”
“A watershed moment of what the raw power of committed and sophisticated acting, writing and directing can achieve.”
Peter Blackburn, Theatre Director
