The first reviews for Kes are in, and they’re looking good.
Mark Brown, for The Sunday Herald says:
“its flawless performances are beautifully facilitated by outstanding choreography by Janice Parker, careful lighting by Jeanine Davies and suitably emotive music by Danny Krass.”
Mary Brennan, writing in The Herald:
“Everything, from Karen Tennent’s junkyard of a set, to director Gill Robertson’s sure yet light touch, to Danny Krass’s soaring, lyric music makes this production for the over-10s fly with feeling. Look out for it on tour.”
Edinburgh Spotlight says:
“Kes is yet another triumph from Catherine Wheels. Proving that theatre for a younger audience needn’t lose any of its strength or impact, their latest production soars with an emotional power which sweeps down and grabs the audience, yet never loses sight of its central themes of hope and salvation”
And The Public Reviews:
“The creative team, under Robertson’s taut direction has achieved a visually stunning play with film, sound and music to match, beautifully choreographed with strong physicality and seamless powerful performance”
More reviews to come. We’ll keep you posted.
