BWW Review: Mad Horse's THE NETHER Is Bold and Beautiful
by Carla Maria Verdino-Sllwold - Jan 22, 2017

'Bold, beautiful, brilliant' even are perhaps the first adjectives that come to mind to describe Mad Horse Theatre's latest production of Jenifer Haley's provocative play The Nether. And these words are quickly followed by 'difficult, disturbing, and dense.' The eighty-minute dark psychological drama with sci-fi thriller overtones, directed by Christine Louise Marshall, invites the spectator into a seductive and frightening world of obsession, compulsion, and perverse desire, and yet, by the time the wrenching evening has run its course, both characters and audience have found a measure of catharsis and truth that is its own ray of light.

BWW Review: THE COMMITMENTS, Bristol Hippodrome
by Tim Wright - Feb 22, 2017

We're in Dublin and it's 1986. Jimmy and his musician friends are fed up of art school synth music and want to bring soul music back to the people. The Commitments is adapted from Roddy Doyle's novel of the same name (that in turn was made into a cult hit film). However, for a show that proclaims on countless occasions that soul is 'the music of the people' and eulogises about it's importance- it is evening strangely devoid of that very thing. (more...)
