Respect to the author of these two excellent plays and to all those involved in the creative process Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 17 December 2022
This is (almost) a first for me. I do not usually read plays, as I prefer to go and see them performed on stage. But it worked! I quickly got drawn into the plot and felt the same as when I’m sitting in the dark, breathing in the magic of the theatre.
The characters are realistic and credible, the dialogues flow naturally, full of humour, despite the tragic events inspiring both plays. Above all, the narrative focuses on issues that are topical, pressing and deeply relevant to our times.
But what impressed me most is the methodology applied by Odd Eyes Theatre – the collaborative philosophy behind it, and the creative communication between people coming from different backgrounds.
This is responsible theatre practice that denounces inequality and opens a debate among the public.
All my respect to the author and to all those involved in the creative process!
More plays, please!
