Wyrd Sisters 2011 Indaily Review

Reviewer: Indaily

FRIDAY, 17 JUNE 2011 THEATRE: Wyrd Sisters Bakehouse Theatre STEPHEN HORNE – Indaily TERRY Pratchett’s Discworld is a strange place indeed. So strange that at times it resembles a slightly distorted version of our own world. In this latest Pratchett adaptation from Unseen Theatre Company, we are treated to witches (both real and fake), a fool who is the most intelligent person in the land, a playwright seemingly resembling the Bard, anxious guards and the ghost of the recently murdered King. There’s an immaculately turned-out scheming duchess, a simperingly evil duke, witches learning their craft by quoting from Shakespeare’s Macbeth,… Read more

Review of Going Postal (2019) by Christine Pyman

Reviewer: Christine Pyman
First published in: Broadway World
Date of review: 22 November 2019

“There’s a delicious ironic pleasure to be had to come to understand that, even while you are enjoying watching a comedic play, ostensibly about criminal activities, you are the ones creating this rich vein of society that’s being mined and re-presented for our entertainment. Darkness and laughter mix intoxicatingly well. Unseen Theatre Company, for those that don’t already know, is the brilliant brainchild of Pamela Munt, director, actor, and chief whip-holder Pamela is to be applauded for her vision and task-making, and her perspicacity in gathering a talented bunch of people around her. Costumes, set design, production, photography, and everything… Read more

Left – Pamela Munt, Kahlia Tutty and Therese Hornby. Cover – Hugh O’Connor and Paul Messenger. Photos – Michael ErreyWyrd Sisters is a play of great empathy, idiosyncrasy and rib-tickling fun. What makes it exhilarating is the way Terry Pratchett’s imaginings boldly defy convention by holding a mirror up to life. That’s why everything is approximately the wrong way around.The fun begins even before the show commences. In the foyer, just in front of the stocks, Cut-Me-Own-Throat-Dibbler is giving away free programmes with every gold coin donation. He’s hamming it up with promises of rat-on-a-stick (cocktail sausages) during the interval. The… Read more

Review of ERIC by Allison Thomas

Reviewer: Allison Thomas
First published in: Encore Magazine

Eric Review By Allison Thomas Encore magazine October 2018 As a Terry Pratchett fan, and a fan of Unseen Theatre, I looked forward to enjoying “Eric”, the latest play adapted by Pamela Munt and the talented Unseen actors. Only two actors played one part and they were on stage most of the time. Chris Irving was the delightfully vague and wise Wizzard Rincewind. Eric, the nervous 14 year old demonologist, was well played by Sam Tutty. Most of the other actors played 3 or 4 different identities. We enjoyed the antics of the talking puppet parrot by Alycia Rabig and… Read more
