What I liked

I loved Anja’s characterisation throughout the piece, the specificity with which she crafted the characters, and the way she fully visualised everything in the story. I also thought the writing of the piece was second to none, allowing the 30 minutes to whizz by, with not a single word wasted or misplaced.

What I didn't like

Possibly in a future mounting of this production if Anja continues to build on the incredible work would be to have all of the physical props for the second half of the show, so nothing needs to be mimed.

My overall impression

A beautifully imagined, fully realised, and impeccably acted. GO AND SEE THIS SHOW!! A remarkable telling of an extraordinary moment in Lord Bryon’s life, told with a poignancy that will break your heart! Anja has written and crafted a fantastic show, using her unique voice to share a delicate story centering around a father and a daughter, which you won’t want to miss.
