“20 South Street deserve praise for bringing the work of award-winning Catalan writer Josep M. Benet i Jornet to a wider audience… each of the unnamed characters in the four-piece cast, from the couple hiding their true urges (Annabel Cleare and Simon de Deney) to Stephen Connery-Brown’s creepy, cold-loving roadside lurker and Isabelle Gregson’s over-sharing femme fatale, are consistently intriguing and well-executed.” Remotegoat
“There is much to admire in Jornet’s deep analysis of the fundamental questions and problems implicit within relationships. The feeling of a lurking unseen terror is superbly impressed on the audience, heightened by the well-illustrated themes and the use of ticking, ringing, and scratching that provide the soundtrack to the mounting frustrations and sense of panic.” Spoonfed
“Stubbs’ production of Desire manages to effectively capture a mysterious sense of confusion as Cleare frustratingly searches to unravel her own desire… Gregson and Connery-Brown fit the enigmatic couple with just the right balance of apparent innocence and cryptic statements… Lees’ design for the set in the black box theatre is roughly a road, with three white dashes running, slanted along the middle… Gregson’s openness appropriately conforms to this barren roadside, and it also echoes the stark sense of Cleare being inwardly lost.” Extra!
