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

Review of Wyrd Sisters by Stephen Davenport

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

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

BROADWAY WORLD review by Christine Pyman, 6th October 2018. For those unused to the Discworld creations of the late Sir Terry Pratchett, be prepared for mayhem and madness, melded together by a brilliantly observational intellectual mind. Pamela Munt has worked hard with Sir Terry’s vision, by adapting, producing, and directing his written novel into to a two-hour play for her Unseen Theatre Company. In this story, we are introduced to Eric, a very typical almost fourteen-year-old boy, one of the Billy Bunter types, who just happens to be an exceptional demonologist. His talents gain him the attention of the demon king… Read more

Review of ERIC by Ewart Shaw

GOOD CHEMISTRY ON STAGE ERIC – The Bakehouse until October 20.  Please note: non Pratchett lovers, and there may be a few, won’t understand half of this review.  Now read on. The story of Eric, pimply teen demonologist (Sam Tutty, left), and Rincewind the wizard (Chris Irving) is not one of the greatest Pratchett adventures, but Pamela Munt’s adaptation to the Unseen Theatre Company’s house style, has laughs and thoughts enough to satisfy fans. Director Munt turns up as Footnote to fill in the narrative gaps, and the cast, almost all of them Unseen veterans, work hard to put the story… Read more

Review of ERIC by Nicola Woolford

Date of review: 7 October 2018

Tongue in cheek representations of Hell and the classic Faustian deal abound in the Unseen Theatre Company’s latest Terry Pratchett adaptation, Eric. The Bakehouse Theatre foyer is flooded with red lights and decorated with demonic motivational posters, such as “The beatings will not continue until morale improves”. This perfectly sets the mood for the devilish adventures to come. Our hero of the evening is the titular Eric, portrayed by a winningly naïve Sam Tutty. Eric is a 13-year-old aspiring demonologist, who makes a critical error when trying to summon an all-powerful, wish-granting demon from the depths of Hell. Instead Eric calls Rincewind,… Read more

Review of Feet of Clay by Christine Pyman

Reviewer: Christine Pyman
First published in: Broadway World

“FEET OF CLAY” is a Tale Of Political Manipulation, Murder, and Self-Realisation” – Broadway World Feet of Clay, like all of the richly interwoven stories of Sir Terry Pratchett‘s Discworld, provides another thread of background to his fantasy world, whilst standing very ably on its own feet, whether of clay or otherwise. This is the first golem story, which leads on to the well-known stories, Going Postal and Making Money. The tale explores what it means to be self-directed and, as such, is something to which everyone can relate. Cleverly, out of all of the Pratchett plays, this showed the hubble-bubble… Read more
