Animals Reviews

April 15th, 2015

This past week has been full of excitement and energy as our in-house production Animals has moved to its home here at Theatre503.

Opening night was a blast. We had a sold out crowd of writers ready to be inspired. We have had over 40 Rapid Write Response submissions for the show! Audiences in general have left feeling shocked, scared, thoughtful and overall glad that they saw such an interesting piece of theatre.

Not only did the writers respond well but Animals has also had some great reviews from the press. We have received four stars from a few reviews so far along with many great quotes, a few of them being:

★★★★ – LondonTheatre1

★★★★ – London City Night

★★★★ – Plays to See

“A very topical dystopia” – Time Out

“Full of black humour and successfully racks up the tension” – The Stage

“As dark and sweet as Philip Ridley or Martin McDonagh” – WhatsOnStage

Animals is as funny as it is relevant…a winner” – London City Nights

“Emma Adams’ script is witty and multi-layered” – LondonTheatre1

Press night was, as always, an enjoyable time. The cast enjoyed their time in the limelight but quickly got back to work to continue to create such a great show.

It has been a fantastic first week and we are very excited about what is to come in the weeks ahead.
