REVIEWS FROM LIVE PREVIEWS 28 JANUARY – 14 FEBRUARY 2021
“This is a production hugely relevant for its time which explores the pandemic-related themes of isolation, confinement, loneliness, loss and death, turning our living room into a strange and eerie world in so doing. It is enticing, dramatic, creepy, fascinating and ultimately poignant as it leads the audience deep into dark, wild woods and strange, alarmingly confined spaces to meet the characters that tell their frightening and sad stories of loss, love and death.“
“Whilst the production is paving the way for a new digital form of theatre, it’s also harnessing traditional conventions of verbal storytelling and the very intimate relationship that exists between the teller and the listener that can feel starkly exposing. Whilst the overarching theme of the play is clearly dark though, the viewer is ultimately left with the sense these unfathomable struggles and obstacles have finally been endured and overcome, and that there is light at the end of a very dark tunnel.”
“Creation Theatre’s telling of these tales, via Zoom call, is astonishingly beautiful and very creepy… The show begins with Graeme Rose’s telling of the Juniper Tree and cuts to different actors on their own sets, to splice the stories together smoothly. The sets and costumes are extraordinarily beautiful – the best I have seen for a long time.”
