"An impressive, thought provoking work wrapped up into a tight one hour package."
★★★★★ THE ALTERNATIVE GIG GUIDE
“The uncompromising sharp wit of Don’t Look Away’s tight production ensures these themes will continue to turn around in your mind long after you leave the theatre. Ultimately we are faced with a question of acceptance, and a challenge to embrace the ignored.”
"Thanks to Katz’s fable-like writing, Phil Rouse’s bold and imaginative direction and Chantelle Jamieson’s shining performance, Don’t Look Away’s production stages the unstageable."
“Director Phil Rouse returns to Theatre Works with this dark and powerful production. Boosted by accompanying 80s pop culture references and ballads, dramatic lighting, sound and smoke haze effects, Lally and Phil have admirably brought Shelley’s iconic story onto today’s stage with refreshed relevance.”
