IN THE PRESS
” ‘A Victorian Eye’ is an undeniably engaging and oft enlightening portrait of a man whose name certainly deserves to be better known.”
“Maureen Payne-Hahner knows how to plunge the audience into the real drama of science as a human endeavor…with all its delicacy and beauty, with all its tumult and raw emotion. Audiences are captivated by the simple, pure, honest moments that lay bare the humanity of the characters whose distilled scientific legacy represents a mere fraction of the story.”
“5 Stars. A Victorian Eye, Rory Fellowes’s triumphant one-man play.”
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.”
“Director Maureen Payne-Hahner does imbue the interaction between the cast members with such firm reality…her subtle work also emphasizes Bogosian’s taut thinking and sharp sense of humor. Highly recommended.”
“Nothing sacred in this highly theatrical work of magic realism, which is quite different sort of play for The Gift Theatre.”
“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.”
“Maureen Payne-Hahner finds humor in what could be a droll sociology thesis. Highly recommended.”
UNSEEN at The Gift Theatre Is Intense, Impactful and Impeccable.
