Christina Alagaratnam writes an impactful script filled with authenticity – Kai and TJ given their opportunity to air their grievances and express their living within a societal structure that doesn’t appear to support them.”

– Lucy Basaba, Theatrefullstop, 2022

“Alagaratnam nails the South London teenage vernacular but more significantly, she finds a real voice for her characters too.”

– Ian, There Outta Be Clowns, 2022

“Alagaratnam’s writing cleverly allows such grey areas to co-exist: she is not looking for a single person to blame for why he ends up getting involved in crime, but the multiplication of factors that contribute to this decision.”

– Hannah Shury-Smith, The British Blacklist, 2021

“Raw and beautiful portrayal of a mother’s love. Well written and rich with details. I enjoyed it and learning about this time in England’s history, though it was dark.”

– J.P Choquette, Goodreads, 2021

“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?

– Ellie Thompson, Broadway Baby, 2018
