Almeida [Off West End]

“Unpicking the allure of consumerism, even as it describes the damage it reaps... dense, intense... like a staged poem. ”

Matt Trueman (What's On Stage, Time Out)

“Elliptical, tangled, sometimes in danger of suffocating itself with its own complications... A depth charge to the theatre. ”

Susannah Clapp (The Observer)

“Stephens’s extraordinary new play is less a re-creation of the opera than a deconstruction of it... Totally compelling. ”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“Audaciously skewed take on Georges Bizet’s great opera... Longhurst’s poetic production achieves moments of startling intimacy. ”

Henry Hitchings (Evening Standard)

“Stephens’ intriguing unstitching of Carmen glows like the afterburn of a firework... Bleakly beautiful...atmospheric if elusive.”

Natasha Tripney (The Stage, Time Out)

“Simon Stephens’ radical, fractured response to Bizet’s famous opera [is] saturated with a forlorn sense of existential crisis. ”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“Five interlocking monologues about lost souls drifting through mainland Europe... Endlessly intriguing, and finely-played. ”

Andrzej Lukowski (Time Out)

“A gorgeous, absorbing, overambitious mess of ideas about contemporary alienation. ”

Dominic Maxwell (The Times)
