VOICE OVER

As unforgettable and moving as any theatre I've seen.



THE GUARDIAN

about The Odyssey

(placeholder)

Heart-in-the-mouth theatre, unbearably poignant, unrepeatable.



THE EVENING STANDARD

about The Odyssey

(placeholder)

English dialogue taken by six excellent young British-based actors - Admirably, there was no miking for the keen projection of the actors - dominated by Bart van der Schaaf's genuinely funny, natural Papageno-in-speech.
