REVIEWS

The Advertiser
“Hannah Norris nails it exquisitely as an LA Valley girl, the incredulous catalyst for the family confronting its past…There is a breathtaking moment when he executes his domination over Shelly [Hannah Norris].” Samela Harris

Kryztoff RAW
“Hannah Norris’ performance is key as the young outsider Shelley, as it’s her arrival that changes the way we see everything, and she manages to ‘slow-burn’ her way through to the end of the play to perfection.” Kosta Jaric

Adelaide Theatre Guide
“it is Hannah Norris as innocent intruder, Shelly and Nicholas Garsden as slow elder sibling, Tilden who are standouts. Norris slides easily from giggly ineptitude to strong-willed realisation” Brian Godfrey

The Australian
“Shelly, in her rabbit fur jacket and blue jeans, is the unexpected intruder into this world of deceit and delusion. Like an Ibsen character she asks inconvenient questions and elicits uncomfortable truths. In two dramatically difficult moments in particular – allowing Tilden to touch her sleeve and when she is physically humiliated by Bradley at the end of Act Two, Hannah Norris and her fellow actors galvanise the production.” Murray Bramwell

Buried Child review – InDaily

Theatre People
