Reviews

"Everything about this production is class"
Reviewsphere

"Brimming with talent"
Edinburgh Festivals Magazine

"A supreme piece of theatre"
The Stage

"Stonking performances...Amy Mae's lighting design is worth a visit alone"
Fest

"Moving...spellbinding"
Daily Mail

"Phenominal performances...fast paced"
BritishTheatre.com

"Two towering performances...breathtaking"
The Skinny

"Beautifully adapted...skilfully directed...two dynamic performances"

" Jack McNamara's strong direction delivering moments of brilliance...the climatic fight is a standout...a production with a spark of something very special"

"Anyone who doubts that novels can be successfully adapted to the stage should rush to catch The Fishermen at HOME. So too should anyone who just wants to see a stunningly good play"

"Jack McNamara's physical production makes its dramatic flashpoints ping. Quite a catch"

"Theatre at it's brilliant best"
Caught in the Act

"Quite simply a breath-taking production which captures the essence of the book in an innovative and exciting dramatic form, with two actors demonstrating absolute command of the stage"

"A bright and innovative experience: it could be an episode of The X Files with its semi-supernatural visual and auditory conceptualism; but then it could also be a Crimewatch dramatisation as the scenes being depicted could quite feasibly be real world events"
"A thrilling hour of fast-paced and unrelenting action, fuelled by a wonderfully written story that keeps the audience guessing till the very end"

"Powerful and thrilling...A journey of reconcilliation"

"Storytelling in its best form"
QuietManDave

"Very slick, very clever...a dark and forbidding insight into Nigerian culture"

"Delivers everything you could possibly want from modern theatre; it is a perfect gem"

"Powerful and breathtaking performance of African storytelling"
