IN THE PRESS
“Critics weekend pick”
“einen schnellen Rauch!” (translation: A quick smoke!) “starke Leistungen” (translation: strong performances!)
“A Must See Show. QED is a reminder that the most compelling drama is the one that takes place inside an individual’s mind.”
“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’.”
UNSEEN at The Gift Theatre Is Intense, Impactful and Impeccable.
“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.”
“Ideally directed by Maureen Payne-Hahner. Wildly thought provoking experience. QED, a mostly one man show featuring a tour de force performance by Rob Riley. 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 Number…particularly when realized as well as it is here…remains a fascinating study of second chances and their consequences.”
