Reviews for 'Revenge Of The Grand Guignol 2011.

The Public Reviews.com: Another long set-up draws us into 'As Ye Sow' nicely as Jeffrey Mayhew and Scarlet Sweeney's gentle, familiar and delicate performances establish a touching father/daughter relationship.

'Blind Women' finishes the evening with a short out & out psycho-horror with no sense of motive or reason but an aesthetic that Guillermo Del Toro would be proud of. Committed performances, especially the beautifully disturbing Scarlet Sweeney leave us squirming at the climax of this brilliantly sinister, twisted vision.

Islington Tribune on 'Blind Women': The fourth play (and best) about a female factory worker blinded during a German air raid on London.

This show isn't frightening exactly (at first), but it is chilling, brilliantly acted, well written and incredibly gruesome.

It does make you look away, even if you're not the squeamish sort.

Blind Woman, is probably the most traumatic. It made a lasting impact - on my way out I heard one audience member scurrying out of the theatre whispering: "Come on let's go, I don't want to be the last one left in here on my own."

The feeling was mutual for anyone who had just sat through the previous two hours. Bloody, explicit, scary and very realistic, this show put me off going to sleep at night. Recommended for horror junkies far and wide.

Film-News.co.uk about:

As Ye Sow' is a play by Stewart Pringle and it starts rather harmless concerning an elderly man in a care home whose boring routine is broken up only by regular visits from his daughter. They chat about this and about that and as to why he keeps the portrait of dead mum in the drawer instead on the bedside table. And so the time (and the play) passes, without much happening until the TV-set in his room gets switched on. Be warned: it's the last 10 minutes of this play that will make you jolt, so unexpected is the twist and so sudden the shock! I've spotted at least six guests who screamed out loud, and I was one of them.

Final play of the night was 'Blind Woman' by Stewart Pringle, inspired by Lucien Descaves' 'Atelier d'aveugles'. Here, the scenario is set inside a forgotten munitions factory as the blitz rages outside. Four female factory workers, three are creepy looking, one is utterly mad. Doesn't sound like a happy ending is in store and no, there isn't!

The cast of ten are superb and the sets and props add to the atmosphere.

And, London24.com on: As Ye Sow is the story of an elderly man haunted by a deadly secret, and stood out from the rest in terms of sheer dread.

Blind Women is a disturbing portrayal of ostracism and violence in the factories of wartime Britain.

ExtraExtra.org on 'Blind Women':Sweeney's Greta is incredibly intimidating, as she stays silent and still, waiting for her moment to latch onto Ena and interrogate her in an alarmingly chilling manner.


Reviews for Grand Guignol show in 2010.

Evening Standard:

It is so shocking that audience members have run out in terror, vomited and even fainted - or so its creators claim. But rather than being perturbed, the makers of "London's scariest show" say they are delighted. Grand Guignol has attracted sell-out audiences since it opened last month at Camden Fringe venue Etcetera. Now Theatre of the Damned, the company behind the show, has been long-listed for best entertainment and best sound design at the Off West End Awards.


Londonist:

"Scalpel. Forceps. Drill." Crunch. "Leucotome." Screams.

And so begins the first of three stories from the Theatre Of The Damned who have brought their play Grand Guignol to London for its first full-length run. This is not a show for the squeamish - one woman fainted during the first play when we saw it and if you were looking for post-Halloween chills of the non-temperature-related variety, we suggest you walk right past the overhyped Ghost Stories and keep going until you get to the Etcetera Theatre.

Review of the Mourners in 'The House of Bernarda Alba' at the Almeida.

The Guardian, Michael Billington: In Emily Mann's new version, the action of Lorca's tremendous 1936 play has been shifted from Andalusia to rural Iran. This intensifies the atmosphere of oppression and yields one remarkable image, when the house of the play's title fills with over 20 burqa-clad mourning women.
