‘Difficult to engage despite good character development’: NIGHTFALL – Bridge Theatre
Nightfall is peppered with amusing lines, which are like pithy sayings providing us with observations about a range of topics. Certainly, Nightfall could be perceived as giving us a social commentary about a variety of issues.
‘The production feels marooned in this space’: NIGHTFALL – Bridge Theatre
The world of Nightfall is small and intimate but the Bridge is neither of those things and the intricacies of Norris’ writing becomes lost like the wafting smell of interval madeleines.
‘Isn’t too daring or challenging’: NIGHTFALL – Bridge Theatre
Though there are certainly something things to like about this production of Nightfall – Rae Smith’s set and some glimmering gems of dialogue – it is largely a limping story with little sense of its own scale that shies away from bold, political statements about poverty and forgotten people in modern Britain.
‘A quietly affecting piece that has the potential to touch anyone’: NIGHTFALL – Bridge Theatre ★★★
Nightfall is a subtle affair that is funny and quietly affecting – the production is beautifully designed and features some outstanding performances.
‘Thought-provoking & beautifully presented’: NIGHTFALL – Bridge Theatre ❤❤❤❤
Nightfall, a sensitive play about the impact of grief on one family’s life, might be slow to unravel but is completely relatable and engaging.
‘This might have been a good thing’: NIGHTFALL – Bridge Theatre ★★
There was a 15-minute delay to the commencement of Nightfall on the occasion of this review, with an actor delayed on public transport. Sadly that delay was all too short, as what followed was a play that promised so much but delivered little more than poorly performed pretensions.
‘A subject that deserves to be heard, but it’s not the right space’: NIGHTFALL – Bridge Theatre
Named as one of the 1,000 most influential Londoners by the Evening Standard, Barney Norris’ latest play, Nightfall, has just opened at the very high-profile Bridge Theatre.
