Patrons Martina Laird and Tanya Moodie in The House That Will Not Stand
Visit site for more information and tickets
**** ‘In an exemplary ensemble Tanya Moodie’s sharp-tongued slave and Martina Laird’s statuesque Beatrice are outstanding.’ The Stage
**** ‘driven by phenomenal performances with Tanya Moodie’s Makeda and Martina Laird’s earth-shattering Beartrice standing out from a terrific ensemble.’ Exeunt
*** ‘As Makeda, Moodie – superb in Intimate Apparel in Bath and London earlier this year – again proves herself a supremely watchable and intelligent actress, and Laird is suitably fearsome as Beartrice, whose position as both her daughters’ defender and their oppressor recalls that of Lorca’s Bernarda Alba.’ The Telegraph
**** ‘Martina Laird’s startling Beartrice is a magisterial figure with more than a whiff of pantomime about her…… custodia samsung s6 portafoglio farfalle In fact the whole cast dazzles but there’s especially vivid work from Tanya Moodie as Makeda, a resourceful maid who challenges the authority of Beartrice and engages with the spirit world. samsung 9 plus custodia It’s an ardent, compelling performance from an underrated actor.’ The Evening Standard
**** ‘strong performances from Martina Laird as domineering Beartrice, Tanya Moodie as her regal servant’ The Guardian
**** “Laird’s performance is striking and powerful…….Tanya Moodie delivers yet another knock out performance, this time as a slave with fire in her belly and dreams she wishes to achieve.
Moodie is perhaps one of the strongest stage actors working in British theatre. I was blown away by her performances in Fences and Intimate Apparel, and here she excels in an ensemble piece. custodia smartphone samsung a3 Her final scene in the second act is truly moving.’ West End Frame
*** ‘Martina Laird is ferociously commanding as embattled matriarch Beartrice, Tanya Moodie’s servant resonates dignity’ Time Out
‘Laird is a revelation and Tanya Moodie brings a heartbreaking dignity to the role of maid Makeda’ Brent and Kilburn Times
‘Laird superbly communicates dictatorial Beartrice’s talent for the theatrical and the shaky ground on which her foundations are built, ……….Moodie proves a formidable raconteur’ theartsdesk.com
‘As the family matriarch, Beartrice holds her daughters in a grip as tight as a corset. custodia galaxy a8 plus 2018 Laird’s voice moves between strangulated pain and silky-smooth politeness, but when Beartrice warns her youngest daughter, “Odette, you move a muscle and I will break a bone,” everyone within earshot tenses. Watching her trade insults with her arch-nemesis La Veuve (Michele Austin) is like watching two great boxers floating like butterflies, stinging …………. The production is also full of music, composed by Paul Englishby and sung particularly beautifully by Tanya Moodie as Makeda,’ A Younger Theatre
‘There is a touch of Bernada Alba in the controlling maman Beartrice, but Martina Laird gives her a stately stature as she takes dominion over the whole theatre, not just her household. Tanya Moodie gives her slave Mekeda a similar clear-thinking, hardheaded clarity, whether gathering bribes from an enemy of her mistress or spitting sprays of water to control a spectre’
‘Although it is hard to single anyone out I am compelled to draw attention to the towering performance by Martina Laird. custodia trasparente samsung s3 neo Her Beartrice, striding across the stage with her black cane, is complex, angry, controlling and vulnerable.
