* FRINGE FIRST Edinburgh Festival 2018 *

​​'As ever, Dhaenens is witty, charismatic and compelling even at his most grotesque.'

​​- The Guardian -

​​


​​'An amoral political chameleon with a darting lizard tongue to match.'

​​- Broadway Baby -

​​'amongst the 10 best shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe'

​​- The Guardian -

​​​'one of the most powerful performers on the Fringe'

​​- The Scotsman -

Dhaenens doesn't just paint this man as a villain, however. The humanity glints through in Skype calls and FaceTimes with loved ones, showing a stressed and vulnerable person. It's this tone contrast that gives the play its power.'

​​- Theatre Review -

​​'Everything that happens onstage is planned with dramaturgical precision and executed magnificently.'

​​- Total Theatre –
