Global production reviews from The Times, The Guardian & The Stage
"Theatre we are told, is a total experience. You could hardly have better proof than James Kerr’s staging of this first play by the Pulitzer prize-winning American poet Rita Dove. Light, sound, movement and design are used with imaginative freedom.".
"Kerr´s dynamic production suggests that he will be one of the dominant forces in British theatre over the coming decade.".
"Darker Face of the Earth has been skilfully staged by James Kerr in the round of the National’s Cottesloe Theatre. Both play and production are to be commended for avoiding preaching and clichés."
"The cast rises magnificently to the occasion under James Kerr’s direction. The play has a generosity of spirit, as well as high intensity, which marks it out as a notable achievement on every count."
