Critics rave about Orphans in Edinburgh
Orphans, our co-production with the Traverse Theatre, opened at the Edinburgh Festival this week prior to its run at The REP, and the rave reviews are flooding in.
We can’t wait for you to see this compelling new play by Dennis Kelly, which comes to The REP from 10 to 26 September – but in the meantime you can read some of the reviews the play has been attracting in Edinburgh:
“Kelly starts the tension at full blast and tightens it from there…three terrific performances, brittle, edgy and frightened”
The Times Read the full review
“a grim, thoughtful and beautifully structured two-hour drama…
Kelly is a serious playwright with plenty to say about the way we live now,
often blinded by our own nightmares”
The Scotsman Read the full review
“Kelly is the slipperiest of writers, always pulling the rug from under his characters’ feet – and ours.
Here he is in top form, aided by Roxana Silbert’s production”
The Guardian Read the full review
“This creepy tale builds an atmosphere that lingers long after the curtain call.”
The Independent Read the full review
“An undoubted hit”
