And some written audience reaction:
“Absolutely brilliant ! Very good use of objects to identify actors and the wheel is amazing ! Good choice of story.” Julian Vercruysse, Edinburgh
“Great performance! ***** out of ***** !!!
We need more of our colonial history on stage to better understand today's racism and eurocentrism.
The Hollywood--Setting was a great idea to get closer to the stereotypes that we still have and reproduce again and again. Great stage effects - light - sound/music ... and three superb actors! Thanks” Sven Baake, Hamburg
“Very good, super acting” K. Sanders
“A wonderful postmodern production – Stephen Spielberg in the theatre. Thank you.” Kasia Markham
“Great atmospheric show and the theatre was as hot as Africa.” Harry Wallace
“It is time for more theatre plays about European colonial history. What a great idea to frame the story as a Hollywood movie.” Nina Holsten, Hamburg
“A rattling good yarn of ‘ripping’ proportions ! Cleverly constructed, comedic with a magnificent pace. Magnificent !” Michael Godsman, Edinburgh
