The reviews are in!
CPH Post Online gives The Actor’s Nightmare 5 out of 6 stars and #Wonderland 4 out of 6 stars!
[The Actor’s Nightmare is a] majestic dive into the world of the absurd, […] it keeps you entertained will all kinds of acting: drama, comedy, period acting and so on. […] The actors do a great job of making every scene feel genuine, gripping and comedic – you will be left laughing at the outrageous setting of the play.
#Wonderland is a play that will delight the hashtag generation, as the title suggests. […] The charming and absurd world that Lewis Carroll built is present in every scene, and the actors do an extraordinary job of keeping everyone – young and adults alike – laughing with their performance. […] In true vaudevillian style, the scenes flow in and out of each other at a good pace, and you’re left eager to see what other ridiculous surprises remain in store for you.
Your Danish Life profiles two of our very own actors, Rachel Kador and Andrew Whalley, and calls the show
an evening of two side-splitting one-act comedies.
