“The language is entirely natural but it’s insidious too…This play composts you. You’ll crumble but be better for it"
ED FRINGE REVIEW
“One of the most emotionally intense plays I have seen at the Fringe”
"...beautifully done. There's a tenderness there but also something hard and nasty. An unsettling, inventive and promisingly odd two-hander.”
“Neil Smith’s play is deceptively calm and then builds and explodes – visceral writing...an unmissable play.”
“As I watched this piece of new writing, I had to constantly remind myself that it wasn’t some obscure Pinter play.”...“This fantastic script by Neil Smith balances subtlety with exposition to tauntingly reveal this couple’s secrets. At times they’re filled with resentment, tension, passive and physical aggression, but their interactions are also laced with love…fantastic new piece of realism."
"Wow...I was so emotionally moved and enamoured by the piece...one of the best pieces of Fringe Theatre I have seen...And what an innovative triumph it is...What made this production so strong was the sense of ensemble between the actors and the brilliant script they were working with...this stunner of a play (is) London Fringe at it’s best!"
LONDON PUB THEATRES
"This is a strong, challenging play with outstanding performances, funny, tender but with a dark political commentary at its heart."
"Full of tension and suspense, Creditors is an accessible and modern
adaptation of a classical play. The story is a wonderfully complex revenge tale that is well
"A genuinely frightening spectacle...A very skilled piece of theatre..."
"A taut, modern day psycho-drama... Reservoir Dogs meets Lear"
"Lovingly updated by Neil Smith"
"An unnerving show with deeply sinister overtones, Neil Smith’s script is engaging and accessible."
"Echoes will definitely stay with you… but when you find yourself on your own on a dark night, you might wish that it didn’t."
“...the finest piece of new writing and acting that I’ve watched in quite some time...Neil Smith’s style of writing is darkly comic and simply brilliant. The depths to which he details his characters are fantastic and fascinating
"The seconds of silence that reverberate when the lights go down are evidence of this play’s potency."
