Selected for Jong Theater Aan Zee 2014 & Circuit X / Theaterfestival 2015-2016.
"Gholamalizad's performance conveys a palpably raw anger and resentment"
- FEST -
'A reason to talk' is equally moving, provoking and daring. A bold and beautiful piece of art.'
- Broadway Baby -
'Through these diverse mediums, she digs deep into her flaws, her hopes, her fears, and her family, creating a visually dense, and conceptually brilliant performance.'
- My Entertainment World -
'A failure to communicate between mother and daughter becomes an eloquent deconstruction of the limits of articulacy.'
- The Stage -
'A bravely personal piece.'
- **** FEST MAGAZINE -
'The core premise and style of the approach are truly unique and with further shaping this piece could pack more of an emotional wallop.'
- *** EXEUNT -
'A Reason To Talk is a painful and searching show, in other words, as courageous as it is austerely inventive.'
- **** THEATRE REVIEW -
'She becomes the DJ of her own family history, through a tangle of multimedia.'
- **** The Stage -
'Simply represents the story of all mothers and daughters.'
- **** The Scotsman -
