ESCAPED ALONE, by Caryl Churchill and directed by Jenny Kemp, is impressing audiences and reviewers alike. Tickets are selling fast so book now and join us at“Red Stitch Actors’ Theatre, the small venue with a reputation for big storytelling” (Time Out)!

Here’s what the critics are saying:

“a thoroughly worthwhile, fiendishly resonant hour of must-see theatre. – ★★★★1/2, ArtsHub

“Churchill’s ability to trace profound psychological truths and political intelligence through highly stylised forms is masterful – it’s not for nothing that she is considered one of the world’s greatest living playwrights.” – ★★★★, Time Out

“Each performer has moments of brilliance…Forsyth is marvellous and mischievous and compellingly weird when she dredges up intimations of dystopia from the collective unconscious.” – The Age

“Jenny Kemp is so perfectly suited to the role of director here that it’s hard to imagine how previous productions have managed without her.” – ★★★★1/2, Australian Book Review

“This intimate Red Stitch production, directed by Jenny Kemp, is done with considerable artistry and attention to detail, with a standout performance by the inimitable Forsyth.” – The Herald Sun

“It’s a fascinating work, and Jenny Kemp…brings together an impressive cast to tackle it.” – The Age
