REVIEWS

“Christina Alagaratnam’s Face to Face is an intense sixty minutes of fascinating, thought-provoking and disturbing theatre. This is a complex story full of questions with few answers; it’s not just one tragic story, but two – two young people without parents, it’s just that one of them violently took the other’s parent away. “

“One of the most effective things about the piece is the strong, emotional script, written by Christina Alagaratnam. Christina had obviously taken the time to really think about how to show both perspectives.

Overall, I found the piece very clever in the way it explored a murder and the grieving process which Emma’s character is going through.”

“You are invited to witness a series of intimate moments of vulnerability and loathing between two broken individuals seeking closure from a murder nine years ago. Face to Face is a brilliant, gripping, chilling performance highlighting the internal and external conflicts surrounding murder and asks the question: can we forgive the unforgivable?
