"In terms of showcasing her versatile acting skills, this might be [Sarah] Fallon's greatest performance on the Blackfriars stage where she has given us indelible Margarets, Kates, and a Dido. Evadne's character arc is Cleopatra-like in scope, a journey through multiple emotions and personality traits all linked by a powerful thread of self-purpose, and Fallon navigates it all with absolute sureness."
Check out the rest of the review HERE..."For a play with the word "tragedy" in the title (and which maid's tragedy?), it contains a lot of comedy. Credit to the actors who, after years of experience with Shakespeare and his contemporaries, have an innate understanding of Jacobean humor. With such a good start, courtesy of Beaumont and Fletcher, the ensemble handles the dialogue with confidence, the emotions with authenticity, and the characters with empathy. Through the troupe's all-in performance, it is us who leave our hearts on the Blackfriars Playhouse stage floor—after we've retrieved our jaws."
