PRESS QUOTES

tick, tick...BOOM!, PARK THEATRE

‘Bronagh Lagan, is quickly becoming one of the country’s most innovative and thoughtful directors. Indeed, she’s so far ahead of the game that, in a sense, we are playing catch-up with her, while her own imagination races ahead to create new types of response. 

 

Not all directors are blessed with this extraordinary ability to ‘resonate’ with their public in this way, to continue the relationship between themselves, and their painstakingly assembled companies and elaborately constructed productions, and to reach beyond their allotted run and into the after-life of what happens when the production has closed.  I think maybe Lagan might be one of those remarkable directors.’

“...a heartfelt sincerity and yearning poignancy that swept me away.”

BLOOD WEDDING, THE COURTYARD, LONDON

“But it is a testament to the richness of the work that neither the off-broadway production that I saw in Spanish nor the intense and intimate one that I saw seven years ago under a pub in Baron’s Court prepared me for the overwhelmingly awe-inspiring execution of vision by Bronagh Lagan in this triumph at The Courtyard Theatre in Hoxton…” 

HACKNEY HIVE

“And this production is most certainly magic realism, richly adorned in the magic of the theatre…” 

“Richly layered and sizzling with seductive, sexual energy, this production is a feast for the senses, and for the mind, it will leave the theatregoer’s soul rent in two by the end…”

PLAYS TO SEE 4*

★★★★
 

“Lorca’s writing is inherently poetic, tumbling over the page with a beautifully tortured grace, mirrored here with the use of physical theatre, dance and music laced through the production…”  


“The ensemble of actors show great guts in their committed attack on Lorca’s lyricism…”

FOURTHWALL MAGAZINE 

“Bronagh Lagan's Blood Wedding does full justice to his work with a production that overflows with emotion, compels with its portrayal of families rent asunder and captivates with its language.”

“Blood Wedding is a difficult piece to stage - so much can go wrong in any production that's an all-through 100 minutes, never mind one with this level of ambition - but they pull it off spectacularly well…”

BROADWAY WORLD 

“Beautifully orchestrated, Lagan utilises Rodriguez-Weil’s triumph with characters entering and exiting the stage intermittently…”
