Review From Stephen Masters

July 27, 2019

Sensational! Shocking and brilliant. Great theatre. Powerful, well-polished performance with impeccable acting. Transcendence of stagecraft into actual belief which is extremely rare. I still live in fear of Hawkins and weep for Ardy. Makes 'Lord of the Flies' seem like a sopish English high tea. The thing is this: nothing has changed. There is no limit to the cruelty one human, given power, will inflict upon another. Think refugees.
The brilliant scorpion sting in this play is the eventual transcendence of imprisonment where they meet again in a bookshop and, I imagine, talk about the old days over a cup of tea. A bookshop also has a transcendent function being a source of entertainment, knowledge and enlightenment. At the same time the archetypes of  prisoner and guard is dissolved into the past. And…we are left with hope for the future. Classic storytelling
