Eastern Daily Press – David Porter:
“… a sharp, well-costumed and plausible presentation”. On Sarah Farrar’s performance – “a tour-de-force, from manipulative comedy one moment to subtle menace the next – her pent up anger and impatience reinforced by a uniquely expressive face”.
East Anglian Daily Times – Ivan Howlett:
“wonderful stuff, beautifully and classically constructed and played with passion, clarity and aplomb by RoughCast Theatre. Sarah Farrar plays Hedda with a taut, nervy desperation and there are nicely balancing performances all round with Paul Baker’s Judge Brack – smiling insidious and corrupt, the weather vane for the world Hedda sees as almost inescapable”.
Diss Mercury – Basil Abbott:
“Sarah Farrar’s Hedda is a coiled spring fighting 19th century Norse propriety …… with a maleficent glance, a mouth that pouts and a smile like sunlight glinting on a bayonet, she ignites this complex heroine”.
Diss Express – Paul Monkhouse:
“A classic play and an utterly wonderful production”.
