Breathtakingly powerful performances

Irish Independent review of Sixteen Up

 

“The familiar coming of age of two 16 year olds is handled so profoundly as to metaphysically strip bare all the defensive shackles of youth, leaving behind and empty hollow aftermath. Superficial simplicity is overwhelmed by emotional complexity.

With two breathtakingly powerful performances by Wicherek and Turner, this most impressive production is assisted by the beautiful accompaniment of Jules Maxwell.”
