"Heart-stopping emotional brilliance"
“A deft, penetrating production...
Caitlin Abbott’s set has a vaudevillian dash, in which, Merrick, a prize exhibit, is repeatedly trapped ”
"Nuanced, artfully put together and seamlessly delivered. Overall an on stage triumph"
"A powerful, poignant and still relevant play 128 years after the real Joseph Merrick died.The set itself is also a triumph "
"Caitlin Abbott’s inventive set has embraced the play’s unashamed theatricality and artifice very effectively."
