REVIEW: August012’s Roberto Zucco – Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff by Sam Pryce

We all have a morbid fascination with serial killers. How can someone be that fearless and disturbed to commit such an act of forethought malice over and over again? In this 1988 absurdist play from French playwright Bernard-Marie Koltѐs, the notion that a killer is in fact influenced by the hypocrisy and corruption of others … Continue reading REVIEW: August012’s Roberto Zucco – Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff by Sam Pryce

PREVIEW: August012’s Roberto Zucco – Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff by Sam Pryce

Roberto Zucco – natural or nurtured killer? That question, among others, is the sort of thing this production of Bernard-Marie Koltѐs’ final play shall attempt to answer.

Dandelion Review “The writing, the lighting, the acting, the set – it’s, quite frankly, flawless” by Young Critic Sam Pryce

This was the first play to make me cry. Not because it was so awful, of course; but because its story, characters and premise would bring tears to even the most cynical of eyes. In fact, the work of Patrick Jones has always been intensely emotional. His poetry is especially controversial and visceral, tackling subjects … Continue reading Dandelion Review “The writing, the lighting, the acting, the set – it’s, quite frankly, flawless” by Young Critic Sam Pryce
