IN THE PRESS
“QED is a most engaging glimpse into the psyche of a genius. Catch it yourself.”
“5 Stars. A Victorian Eye, Rory Fellowes’s triumphant one-man play.”
“Complex, provocative production has as much emotional depth as academic sophistication. Highly recommended.”
“Part of what The Gift is all about is producing plays that tell stories with honesty and simplicity. This one hits the mark perfectly. Highly recommended.”
Director Maureen Payne-Hahner also keeps the action fluid, balancing moments of high tension with subtler scenes that build character rather than conflict.
“A Must See Show. QED is a reminder that the most compelling drama is the one that takes place inside an individual’s mind.”
Maureen Payne-Hahner’s sensitive yet unflinching direction keeps the tensions between the actors high, but never loses sight of the care and love beneath the arguments, trauma, and upset.
“4 Stars. A tour-de-force performance by Nigel Dunbar, under director Maureen Payne-Hahner…first play for the London stage by Mr Fellowes, the brother of Downton Abbey creator Julian. As interpreted by Mr Dunbar, it suggests that he is taking well to the family ‘trade’.”
“4 Stars. A Victorian Eye showcases Fellowes’ beautifully crafted script, but it is the superb acting of Nigel Dunbar that lifts this monologue off the page, and transforms it into an evocative retelling of the life and work of a former giant of the Victorian era.”
” ‘A Victorian Eye’ is an undeniably engaging and oft enlightening portrait of a man whose name certainly deserves to be better known.”
