“an intense and finely honed production” ★★★★

The Stage

Pat Ashworth was also full of praise for Sean Chapman as patriarch Joe Keller: “an outstanding performance from Sean Chapman – he is so easy and comfortable in his skin, his clothes, his manner.”

“sublimely directed by Fiona Buffini and a slow burning firecracker of a production” ★★★★★

East Midlands Theatre

“This production has subtle elements of Greek tragedy running through it. They course so finely within the two hours playing that when the end comes it is as profound as if it has happened in your own family.”

“This is a fine production of an American classic”

Nottingham Post

Critic Alan Geary had prasie for several members of the cast: “As flawed protagonist Joe Keller, Sean Chapman is terrific… Cary Crankson, tall and rangy, is perfectly cast as his son Chris… Kate Keller, unable to accept the finality of a bereavement and striving to hold the family together, is also beautifully played by Caroline Loncq.”

“moving and dignified”

Exeunt Magazine

Peter Kirwan, writing for Exeunt Magazine, was taken with the underlying themes of the production as presented by director Fiona Biuffini: “This production isn’t interested in big-P politics so much as in people, and Buffini’s subtle direction highlights the emotional stakes as a family are torn apart by the exposure of their world’s foundations.”
