What are people saying?

  • Richmond Hill's rating of the film Joe's Ark

    The End is (Almost) Nigh... Rather more equivocal than most Potter works, this 'test of faith' drama draws on his typical themes - religious proselytism, disability, dysfunctional familial relationships, death - in a dry but thought-provoking play that sets out counter positions with clarity. On a technical point, the lighting is well nuanced for a studio-based play of this era with good use of shadow and reflection.
