★★★★ – Life as Theatre
★★★★ – Stagetalk Magazine
Mad Forest by Caryl Churchill immerses us in the tumultuous world of the 1989 Romanian Revolution. Fuelled by Churchill’s vivid storytelling, dark humour and fantastical imagination, we follow the remarkable story of two families whose lives are forever altered by the revolution.
As relevant today as when it was written, Mad Forest embraces a richly theatrical style, introducing us to a vampire, a talking dog and an angel among others along the way.
A kaleidoscopic and surreal look at life under oppression and the painful difficulties of lasting change.
Evan Lordan was Assistant Director to Max Key on this production
