SALIR SALIR MADRID
“An extremely enjoyable comedy”
“Wonderful overtones of white humour... an overdose of laughter”
Metamorphosis (Grec Festival, 99)
“With few elements, Escapade Theatre Company have treated us, yet again, to an unusual opportunity for jaw ache. Don’t miss it. This is serious theatre to laugh yourself silly to.”
“The most seen show in Grec 99 in the first ten days (93% attendance).”
1984 (Teatre Versus May/June/Nov 2017)
“What makes this play so utterly convincing are the first-rate performances of the entire cast” Orwell Society
"OMG. This is a MUST-SEE. Tell your friends. Seriously. Do. Not. Miss."
"Fantastic performances from the whole cast... After two hours of relentless dystopia, we left the theatre completely traumatised. A great Saturday night!, a highly recommended production."
"A very grim, powerful show that doens't pull the punches when it comes to the harrowing torture scenes in the second act."
"Escapade has outdone themselves. We saw the show last weekend and were blown away. This show is terribly relevant to the times we live in and the actors, designers, tech, and director+ have created something viscerally moving. It is a must see show. Thank you, Escapade!"
"A brilliant show, so glad we saw it! Great direction, staging and acting. Insightful and thought provoking."
"A moving show and an impressive production."
"Thank you for the incredible theatre experience, this is what Art is all about! I hope many more come to see you and reflect upon the dangerous times we're living."
"Incredibly powerful acting and the ideal, intimate theatre to see it in. A great performance."
"Thoughtful and evocative. Terrifyingly close to the times we are living in."
Decadence (Grec Festival, 98)
“A splendid text but it is, without doubt, one of those plays where not understanding English is only a relative obstacle because the performances of Caspar and Sue Flack, also director of the piece, are so extraordinarily funny, so perfectly English, with facial mime that is so understandable and so comic, that it deserves to be seen just for that.”
“They manage to fill the stage with objects, music and silences, with authentic theatrical magic…An elegant production of remarkable simplicity and rivetting performances. A rare pearl that is worth cultivating.”
L´Inspector (The Government Inspector) (Teatre Tantarantana, 2001)
“Sue Flack is a director with very clear ideas…It’s the best show that can be seen in Barcelona at this moment.”
“A feast of observation, a splendid representation, an excellent treatment of the text, the absurd is served up here for your enjoyment.”
CLIP DE TEATRE
Alice in Wonderland-the musical
(Teatre Gaudí Maig 2016)
"Entertaining, enchanting and altogether brilliant. Sue Flack’s bold decision to stage her production in this way was a masterstroke.There wasn’t a single weak link among the cast. Overall, Escapade Theatre Company’s Alice In Wonderland is an undisputed success, and all involved are an absolute credit to Flack’s vision. This is the best show I have seen in Barcelona, and it is hardly surprising that Escapade have cemented their name as one of the city’s leading English theatre companies." Metropolitan
The Visit (Almeria Teatre May-June 2018)
"It is not easy to write a review of a show that we can only summarise by saying that it was unbeatable; of dramatic effectiveness above and beyond all limits"
"An extraordinary production, full of genius ideas"
"... the people in charge of theatre of our city should invite this extraordinary director to carry out some shows with Catalan actors"
"All the scenic elements flowed in perfect balance and were full of meaning"
"The direction was full of those ideas that go unnoticed because they are not added occurrences, but bullseyes, sometimes achieved with very simple means"
" ...the best theatre that was being done in Barcelona"
